HOW YOU LEARN
For over 40 years, NTTS has trained and placed thousands of people from all walks of life, different educational backgrounds, nationalities, races, religious beliefs, and social-economic groups. Realizing no two people progress at the same rate of speed, we have developed and utilized our highly successful approach to learning of theory, demonstration and practical application to train you for your career.
The first exposure to new subject matter is in the classroom, where the theory and procedures of driving are discussed. These classroom and theory sessions are supplemented by a student textbook (J.J. Keller), CDL manual, logs, road atlas, etc.
Upon completion of various classroom and theory sessions, a qualified NTTS instructor demonstrates what you have learned by using shifting simulators and other equipment. Once you have seen the demonstration, you are ready for practical application.
Under the supervision of a NTTS instructor, you are now involved in a guided "Hands On" driving portion. These procedures are repeated throughout the entire program with evaluation to ensure you every opportunity for successful completion of the program and future employment as a driver.
