Maverick Transportation has opened the Maverick Driving Academy driving school, located on the company’s North Little Rock, Arkansas, campus, adding CDL education to its existing training programs.
Classes are scheduled to begin Dec. 3. Students will receive the necessary CDL education and training to become professional drivers.
“One of the biggest challenges that trucking companies face today is attracting new drivers to the industry,” said John Culp, president of Maverick Transportation. “We have been successfully training drivers for many years and are excited to announce the addition of CDL education to our curriculum. Maverick Driving Academy will offer a seamless path to employment at Maverick, for those seeking a new career as a professional truck driver.”
The company opened its first training facility in North Little Rock in 2005, providing drivers with training and securement curriculum. In 2014 it expanded its driver training center, adding more than 13,000 square feet to the previous facility.
“Our new school is a way to add to the driver education that has already been a vital part of our growth and success over the years,” said Culp. “We are committed to growing our company ‘The Maverick Way’ and we’re looking forward to having these new drivers walk through our doors.”
