Schneider National is making it easier for students to turn a dream into reality by offering $6,000 for tuition reimbursement to qualified driving school graduates. The program will cover the full cost of many truck-driving schools to give drivers a leg up as they enter the industry."Schneider National's tuition reimbursement program helps students overcome a big hurdle in starting a driving career - the cost of attending an accredited truck driving school," says Mike Hinz, Schneider vice president. "Safety - the heart of our core values and the cornerstone of our commitment to drivers - starts with proper professional training."To qualify for the tuition reimbursement program, drivers must be hired by Schneider National within 60 days of graduation. Reimbursement payments of $150 are made monthly, up to $6,000 total. Truck driving school curriculum focuses on developing the foundational skills necessary to earn a CDL and is typically completed in four to eight weeks.In addition to the Tuition Reimbursement Program, Schneider offers current and former military members a VA-approved Apprenticeship Program. The program pays up to $1,069 per month in a new driver's first year, in addition to Schneider paychecks.For more information: www.schneiderjobs.com.
