What Kind of Money Can I Expect to Make With a Class 1 License?

9 out of 10 consumer products are moved by long haul truck in North America. This statistic will not be changing anytime soon.  With your Class 1 license, you can be a part of this supply chain and with experience, command in excess of  $70,000 per year.

Of course if you choose to use your Class 1 driving skills inside Winnipeg or Brandon, you will most likely earn less and the competition for these jobs are usually quite intense.

Although you can take a quick course and challenge the provincial Class 1 exam, your salary will reflect the amount of education that you have received.

Most quality trucking firms in Manitoba are looking for a higher standard of training to ensure that their recruits are “road ready”.  Education like this occurs only in respected training facilities like First Class Training Centre.

Our trainers are some of the best in the industry with decades of experience.  Our student to trainer ratio really makes a difference in ensuring that you get the education that you need to succeed as a semi truck driver.

High School Students to Get a Taste of Big Rig Driving

Manitoba’s premier facility for Class 1 driver training is pleased to offer it’s mobile driving simulator as a career day choice for Winnipeg and Manitoba high school students. Last year,  First Class Training Centre went on a cross Manitoba tour to high schools and gave students a chance to sit in the seat of a big rig. The driving simulator is a modified tractor trailer that contains a full scale simulator that mirrors real semi truck driving.

This is a great opportunity to build the pool of talent for this important Manitoba industry.  There is still a shortage of professional Class 1 Drivers.  By introducing students to this fulfilling career choice, it will have a positive impact on the industry. For more information on having the simulator come to a high school near you, contact us.
