Why is Never Too Late to Switch Career Paths

There is no excuse for settling into a dead-end job that you don’t enjoy.  If you’re thinking about switching jobs, know that you can make it happen, no matter your age or education level.  You can pursue an exciting new career with a commercial driver’s license (CDL) and change your life in as little as three weeks.

Our 1st FREE Hiring Event with U.S. Xpress turned out to be a great experience for prospective students, our current students and our grads from different Smith & Solomon campuses.  Everyone who attended was provided with information on the positions U.S.

How Does Contract CDL Training Differ from Attending a CDL School on Your Own?

Today there are different routes you can take to obtain CDL training and a license.  These options have grown due to the increase in demand for drivers and the amount of positions that need to be filled.  These numbers are in the 10’s of thousands.

Major trucking companies are now offering paid training to those interested in the career, but with a catch- there usually involves a contract between both the company and new driver to become employed with them for anywhere from one to three years.

Without Trucking, How Will You Get Your Stuff?

Trucking is one of the most important industries that majority of other industries depend on in order to maintain and increase productivity in their businesses.  Trucks transport and handle more cargo than any other form of transportation- ships, trains, you name it.  Logistics by trucks are involved in every step of the process of a given product.  From transporting materials to having them manufactured, to the delivery of the final product at your local retailer, this is all dependent on that of a truck. 

The Driver Shortage Affects Not Only Trucking Companies, But Consumers Too- That Means Everybody.

The driver shortage continues to be an issue- even with over 3 million CDL drivers currently working, there is still an approximate 50,000+ drivers needed to fill various positions in the industry.

The unfortunate reason for this shortage is due to the age gap between seasoned drivers and newer drivers.  The number of drivers approaching retirement is at a significant percentage higher than new hires.

"Smith and Solomon is a great school. I had enrolled my husband and it has been a blessing. After taking his classes he has been employed and making nice money so we dont have to worry about daily struggles that concerned us before. Everyone was respectful helpful and very knowledgeable of what they were doing. My husband I are very pleased with the service we received and would recommend this school for quick and courteous services. I would also like to say a huge Thankyou to Mack, Mercedes, Bill and Kiki for all of your help it greatly appreciated and Keep it up!!!!"
