Posted on December 30th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

“The instructors were very informative. The practice on the range was very helpful. The alley docking teacher told me, ‘Remember, you can do it slow a million times, one time fast can be destructive.’ And I enjoyed the classroom, there was a lot of valuable information.”

This has been a life changing experience. I’m very proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish. Safety is key.

“I work for ATI (Anley Transport) in Lebanon, Tennessee, a good local company. Thank you TDI.”

David is starting his second career in retirement.

Posted on December 19th, by Ted Hogan in What Do Our Students Say About Us?. Comments Off

“I wanted to get my Class A CDL so I could go to North Dakota. You can make one hundred thousand dollars a year there just driving in town. I have an 11-month-old grandson and I am doing this to put money in a savings account to pay for his college. I am retired from General Motors and have a good retirement. So this is how TDI is helping my family out. Thanks to all the instructors for sharing their knowledge with me. Each one had something special to share. Thanks again.”
