Top Gun Truck Driving Academy was founded in January of 2004 by Greg and Michelle Christianson. They primarily serve the Southern Idaho area, however, students have attended from all parts of the nation. Because they are a family-based business they are better able to serve and meet their student’s needs rather than being bound by corporate rules and regulations.
Top Gun prides itself in training students for industry demands and aiding students through the job application and placement with a company that fits their needs. They train for several top-notch companies and their students are regularly hired immediately after graduation. Top Gun has a strong working knowledge of the industry in all aspects with more than 130 years of combined experience.
Top Gun also takes pride and gives back to the Academy’s community wherever it can. They regularly donate to St. Jude’s, Wounded Warrior Project, and several other local programs.
