SUEZ CANAL BLOCKAGE REMINDER OF HOW IMPORTANT SUPPLY CHAIN JOBS ARE


When the Suez Canal was blocked for almost a week, the world’s supply chain held its collective breath. Oil prices increased almost 2% and some countries began to ration fuel.  The world’s attention was focused on this massive container ship that was wedged sideways and wondered how long it would be before more than 10% of global shipping would begin to flow freely again.


The world, your world, depends on a strong global supply chain. That’s why work as a professional class 1 driver is so important in our society. As a long haul trucker, you are a key component of transporting goods to market. These coveted jobs are not going away any time soon.  If you are tired of  bouncing from low paid job to low paid job, it’s time to consider a career in the global supply chain. They need you now more than ever.

If you want the best opportunity to be placed in the transportation industry upon graduation you’ll find out why most firms consider First Class Training Centre as the premier educator for Class 1 drivers in Winnipeg, Brandon, Thompson and rural Manitoba.  

Other Career Options Than College Offer Quick Reward in the Post Pandemic Economy

Don’t Like How the Pandemic hi-jacked your job? Many of you may be thinking – that’s it. I’m going back to school so I can have a well paying career that is pandemic proof. The only challenge with that thinking is that for most college degrees, you will be investing a minimum of 4 years for a chance to start on the bottom rung of the professional ladder. 

What if I could tell you that for an investment of only 244 hours and at a fraction of the cost of a post-secondary education, you could have a well paying career that was pandemic proof. It might be time to think about a career as a Class 1 professional driver.

Class 1 Professional Driver

Becoming a professional class 1 driver/operator is a career option worth considering. After completing the intense 244-hour training, you will be able to command a starting salary of  $40,000 to $45,000. Because there is still a huge demand for qualified drivers in North America, your ability to quickly move up the pay-scale is there for the taking. To attract drivers, many trucking firms are offering regular routes to allow operators to enjoy a routine outside of the cab. 

The choice is yours.  By the time you graduate from college, your peers driving a big rig will already have made $100,000+. Spend less time in the classroom and more time earning great money!
