Thanks To All Our Essential Workers (Especially the Truck Drivers)

At this time of uncertainty, we would like to thank all of our essential workers throughout Manitoba that are providing necessary goods and services. 
It goes without saying that we are especially thankful  and proud of the hundreds of professional truck drivers that are keeping essential goods and services flowing in and out of our province. These drivers are risking their health in order to ensure supply chains for groceries, medical supplies and other goods remain viable during these troubling times. 

We wish all our past, present and future students good health and remind everyone to practice the government protocols of social distancing and extreme hand hygiene while we all deal with the silent threat that has turned all of our lives upside down. 

As of March 18th, First Class Training Centre has suspended all training. Please check back regularly for further updates.

Stay safe.

Update during COVID-19

UPDATE: MARCH 19, 2020

After much consideration and concern for the health of our instructors and students we have decided to suspend training as of Wed March 18th for the next 3 weeks.

We want to do our part to help reduce the spread of this virus and social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak. Student and instructors being confined in the truck cab does not follow the recommended protocols of social distancing thus our reason to stop training.

Once we have more information we will be contacting current students and future students with start dates to begin training again.

We will have minimum office staff available should you have questions. Please feel free to call our office.

Thank you for understanding and remember to stay safe out there. We will all get through this if we all try to do our part.


During this very uncertain time we at First Class are watching the COVID-19 situation very closely as the health and safety of our employees and students is our number one priority. We will continue to be cautious to ensure we are keeping safety measures in place.
We will continue to keep our staff and students updated as we get more information from the Manitoba Government but until then we will continue training while we keep a close eye on the situation. Right now we are taking this as a day to day situation.

Everyone be safe out there.…/d…/coronavirus-disease-covid-19.html
