Swift partners with some of the industry’s top manufacturers, using late-model Freightliner, International, Kenworth and Volvo tractors – 92% of which are less than five years old.
At our very first Swift Academy, located at Swift's headquarters, you will get nationally recognized CDL training in Phoenix and can begin your career as a truck driver in as little as three weeks. Led by professional, knowledgeable instructors with more than 300 years of combined experience, we specialize in training truck drivers at various ages and stages of life. Best of all, you can start classes at our CDL school in Phoenix with virtually no upfront costs1, no credit checks, and at times that are convenient for you.
With full-time day (6 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and evening classes (6:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.), which you won't typically find with other truck driving programs, you can keep your full- or part-time job while you're working toward your Class A CDL. (Note: Classes begin on Wednesdays, with the first week of classes ending on Friday and the remaining classes running from Monday to Friday. Day and evening classes are only available at the Phoenix Academy.)
In addition, at our Phoenix school, you'll train on a top-of-the-line tractor fleet that's less than five years old2. Our current fleet comes from Freightliner, which means you'll train on some of the newest tractors and the latest technology.
Set on 120 acres, the Phoenix Terminal is not only part of Swift's terminal network and where we take care of our drivers and tractors, but it's home to our CDL school, and where our corporate team works. Currently, the Phoenix Terminal features include:
Full-service trailer shop
Full-service truck shop (for warranty work and mechanical repairs)
Full-sized truck wash
Full-scale fuel center
Café and restaurant (Jake Brake)
Basketball court and racquetball court
When you join our training in Phoenix, you'll learn on one of our Dry Vans, but because the Terminal is home to virtually every line of business that Swift offers, you will also see a wide range of vehicles in action, including:
This exposure can help you better understand your options and help you decide what type of career you'd like to build after graduating from our truck driving school.
At our Phoenix Academy, new classes begin every Wednesday, so once you're accepted into the program, you can begin training for your CDL in just a few short days – or weeks, it's all up to you.
