Want to become an owner-operator?
You can “Truck to Success” with OOIDA’s online business series
The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers Association has noticed that for a variety of reasons, many small trucking businesses tend to fail within the first year of operating. The OOIDA Foundation, which is the educational and research affiliate of OOIDA, wants to help navigate those going through the change from a company driver to an owner-operator, or simply help with the desire to have a more successful trucking business.
To help take that step, the OOIDA Foundation offers the Truck to Success course. The three-day course is designed for drivers looking to become a leased-on owner-operator or an owner-operator under their own authority. This short promotional video describes an overview of the course.
The OOIDA Foundation also offers a free preview to help those on the fence in deciding whether to attend. The “Cost of Operations” is one of the most popular topics and is just one of several complete sessions in OOIDA’s business education course.
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.
This year’s course is scheduled for Oct. 25-27, 2022 in Blue Springs, Mo. For those who cannot attend in-person, virtual attendance also will be available. The price of admission varies, depending on your method of attendance.
