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.
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.
Due to our expanding student load, First Class Training Centre is moving to bigger premises in April 2020. The former premises of Murray Kozie Trucking at 485 Lucas Ave will soon be the home of Manitoba’s premier truck driving school. The new location will allow for expanded Class 1 and Class 3 classroom space where students will still enjoy one of the best student to instructor ratios in the industry. First Class offers one of the best Class 1 driver training schools in Manitoba
