The Trucking School That Broke The Mold
My name is Eric Haney and I own CDL College in Commerce City, CO. My family has worked in the trucking Industry for 85 years. My grandfather started during Prohibition and my father owned an LTL trucking company (if you’re from Denver, you may remember Colorado Denver Delivery). I’ve driven, dispatched, and worked on docks. I like hanging out and working with drivers. But, I really enjoy helping drivers, newbies and experienced. My desire to help comes from being in the industry for a long time and wanting to improve it.
In 2001, I branched out and created CDL College. I’m very proud of the school. We train students from all over the world and have assisted many men and women with the training they need to be successful in the transportation industry. CDL College trains new drivers and makes experienced drivers safer. Our online Course Library, which we created, currently has 85 training videos. We shoot, edit, and narrate all of our videos.
CDL College is also 100% unaffiliated, which means we do not recruit for any trucking companies. Our alternative was to build an online job board for our students. Carriers can post their jobs and search our pool of qualified drivers. Its called Gary’s Job Board. (garysjobboard.com)
Our students make their own training schedules. We don’t tell them when to come to school, they tell us when they can come to school. This is possible due to the sophisticated electronic scheduling system that we developed for the College. Our paperless approach utilizes electronic wifi pads to clock students in and out when they are behind the wheel. Cool, huh? We can hook your school up with the same system. Contact Us for more details.
But, that’s not all. A few years ago we decided to create our own online Driver Management System. It eliminates trucking company paperwork by replacing paper files (and file cabinets!) with electronic driver files. Recruiting, training, accidents and countermeasures, DQF’s, online training…it’s all in there. Ever been audited? It goes a lot faster when your files are online. Trust us, we know. We think the transportation training giants charge too much for their driver management systems, so we built an alternative. It works well for small and medium-sized trucking outfits. Check out safetyasaservice.com, lose the file cabinets, and increase your square footage.
So, we’ve gone from a one-room, one-truck testing facility, to a tech-savvy, 10-truck training and testing hotbed that attracts students worldwide, in just 14 years.
The list of services that we offer to transportation companies grows annually. The current list includes:
