Class 1 Driver Training
There is always a need for skilled, professional Class 1 drivers.
As we have seen recently, not only is there still a need for drivers, but there is also a greater appreciation for what drivers do and the vital role they play in our economy.
While these numbers are based on pre-pandemic data, they are still important numbers to share: the trucking industry, especially our driving population, consists of an aging workforce with an average driver age of 55 years old. Only 15% of the trucking industry’s workforce is under 30 years of age. In 2019, the province estimated a shortage of 4100 drivers in Manitoba by 2025. In short, there’s a real need for drivers, and there will continue to be one for years to come.
