Class 1 Training – Are You Winter Ready?

At First Class Training Centre, we recognize that many of our graduates will be driving in tough winter conditions.  Understanding the challenges of sub-zero driving requires professional drivers to alter their summer driving habits.  At First Class, we spend a lot of time with students to understand what is required to get through the toughest winter tests.

When you are new to semi-truck driving, you need to err on the side of caution.  Although we prepare you for all road conditions, only experience  can dictate when it is not safe to be on the road.  As a professional driver,  you have a responsibility to be safe and be cognizant of the safety of others.

Driving in bad weather, especially in snow and on ice, is risky due to more ‘stop time’ required, poor visibility, poor traction and the increased unpredictability of other drivers on the road.  During your Class 1 training we spend time to ensure you have good maneuvering and skid control skills.  You will need to react quickly if called upon to avoid collisions.

There are many reasons why First Class Training Centre is the trucking industry’s trusted source for road ready Class 1 drivers.  Whether you are in Winnipeg, Brandon or elsewhere in Manitoba, your education is too important to leave to chance.  Learn how to drive with the best in all conditions.  For more information, contact us either at our Brandon or Winnipeg office.
