FREE PREVIEW CLASS JULY 20 at 7 p.m.
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association will offer a free preview of its online series of classes to help those interested in starting a small trucking business. The “Cost of Operations” is one of the most popular topics and will be featured as a one-hour webinar on July 20 at 7 p.m. Central. The event is open to members and non-members.
This segment is just one of a complete course in OOIDA’s business education, Truck to Success, a 3-day, intensive training for those ready to take their first steps toward becoming an owner-operator. The full course is scheduled for October 26-28, 2021.
Those that attend will hear from trucking experts dedicated to helping drivers become successful business owners. The training is designed to follow a logical path along the transition from a company driver to an independent contractor.
