Why First Class is the Best Professional Driver Training School for 10 Years Running

Almost 10 years ago, First Class Training Centre Inc. began training students to be professional drivers. A decision was made at the time, that our training would be the best, and most comprehensive in the industry. We limit our class size to ensure that each and every student gets the attention that they deserve. Our standards are the highest in the industry and all of our instructors are Certified by the provincial government. 

As a long time member of the Manitoba Trucking Association, we have dedicated ourselves to improving the lives of professional truck drivers as well as understanding what the industry wants in new driving recruits. We meet regularly with industry leaders and transportation company owners – thus providing a unique bond and an open dialogue for job opportunities for our students. 

First Class Training Centre is the industry leader for Class 1 and Class 3 driving schools.  Contact us today to learn why this is your best option for a new career. 

Double Digit Contract Increase for Trucking Companies in 2021 Bodes Well for New Drivers

 As North America emerges from the pandemic, many are predicting a double digit increase in contracts for trucking companies in 2021. There are many factors that are contributing to this increase, including low retail inventory levels, and the continued growth in online shopping. The only limiting factor in the trucking industry capitalizing on this years’ boost in pricing and contracts are drivers.


As many driving schools were closed during the pandemic, the availability of new long haul professionals was reduced by as much as 40%.  First Class Training Centre was one of the few class 1 driving schools that had very few COVID interruptions of their classroom time. They continued to provide the supply chain with much needed recruits.  As the competition for drivers continues to grow, new recruits can look forward to bidding wars for their services.


That means more money to start, with better benefits.


If you are considering a career as a big rig driver, the best path to a career is through First Class Training Centre. First Class has been open for business in Winnipeg, Brandon and Thompson throughout the pandemic and continues to safely train a new workforce for the supply chain. Your 244 hour investment is all it will take for doors to open for you to make a meaningful career change. As the best educator for Class 1 and Class 3 training in Manitoba, First Class Training is recognized in the transport industry as the best provider of well trained and road ready drivers for their fleets.
