For Immediate Release
Want to become and owner-operator? Now you can Truck to Success!
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association will offer a class to help those interested in starting a small trucking business. OOIDA’s business education training, Truck to Success, is an intensive training for those ready to take their first steps toward becoming an owner-operator.
The class is scheduled for March 12-14, 2019 near OOIDA headquarters. The class features trucking experts dedicated to helping drivers become successful. The training consists of expert trainers and interaction among participants. Some homework is required for full participation.
The training is designed to follow a logical path of information on the transition from a company driver to an independent contractor. For a variety of reasons, many businesses fail within the first year of operating. If you are thinking about making the switch from a company driver to an owner-operator, or just desire to have a more successful business, we would encourage you to consider OOIDA’s business education training course.
