This is a $67 billion industry. Almost everything shipped spends time in a tractor-trailer or large truck. Whether it is gas, groceries or office supplies, they all arrive at their destination by a truck. Shipping companies, with an aging workforce, are always looking for qualified drivers, which is why they turn to Humber College. This is a secure field with high-paying jobs for hard-working individuals.
Variety of careers
A start in trucking means you have career options. You can work as a fleet manager, driver trainer, operations manager, logistics coordinator, safety and loss prevention manager, transportation analyst, dispatcher, maintenance manager and more.
The conditions for drivers have improved. Tractor-trailers now have roomy beds, TVs, microwaves and computers. Many companies have refreshment depots for drivers spread out across the country, with gyms, rest areas, showers, cafeterias and lounges.
Do you want to be paid to see new places and meet interesting people? Do you want a flexible work schedule? As you gain experience, you have more of a say in your schedule. You can work short-haul and be home each night, or long-haul and explore the country. There are many options, since this is a field looking for people.
There are other schools that teach trucking. What makes a Humber education worth it?
You are part of the largest college in Ontario. We have more than 20 years of experience in training commercial drivers and every program is designed to meet the highest industry standards. This is a program built to last. Humber has an outstanding reputation for providing job-ready graduates.
All of our instructors have years of experience in the field. Our AZ instructors are licensed by the Ontario Ministry of Transportation to administer road tests, so they know the training you need to get your license. They care about you, and want you to succeed.
Companies are eagerly looking for drivers and the first place many look is at Humber. Whether it’s for short-haul or long-haul trucking, they know Humber graduates have the training needed to be reliable, skilled employees. Often, all you need to get an interview is to say that you’re a Humber College trucking graduate.
At Humber, we want to give you the best opportunity to find work. Our trucks are the same ones you will find on the road, and our classes are small, allowing for lots of interaction with instructors. Even if you have never been inside a truck before, our programs are designed to help you get a new career in as little as one month.
