Tulsa is the site of Roadmaster’s Oklahoma CDL training school, one of Roadmaster’s nationwide locations. With so many major truck routes present and such a high demand for freight transport, Tulsa is a major pool for carriers looking to fill driving positions.
Recently Debbie Beers, the Director of Roadmaster Drivers School of Tulsa, let prospective students know what makes Tulsa so great and touched upon the incredible demand for professional truck drivers in the area.
Tulsa, OK, A Great Place To Get Comprehensive CDL Training
Tulsa is still known as the “Oil Capital of the World,” and sits on a massive transportation network that has developed for decades.
Mrs. Beers says because Tulsa is centrally located and provides easy access to major cities like Dallas, Oklahoma City, and Fayetteville, many more carriers are accessible to graduates in the area. Pair that with the rise in demand for new truck drivers and it becomes apparent why Tulsa is a great place for someone looking to begin a career in trucking.
An Iconic American City With Things To Do For Everyone
Of course, the historic Route 66 is a big part of Americana, and it runs right through Tulsa. In fact, just ask Mrs. Beers about Route 66’s best sights; she recommends that everyone come by to get their picture taken with the Blue Whale of Catoosa.
Mrs. Beers points out for sports fans out there that Tulsa has a lot of Minor League and collegiate teams. There are the Oilers, Drillers, and the University of Tulsa and Oral Roberts University, which are both NCAA Division I universities, among many other teams in practically every major sport.
Mrs. Beers also suggests visiting the many lakes in the area for fishing and outdoor excursions. Plus, the Cherokee Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and the Warren Theatre, a luxury multiplex next door in Broken Arrow, OK, help create a fun experience for visitors of the Tulsa area.
Accelerated CDL Training To Jump Start Your Career
Roadmaster Drivers School of Tulsa hosts students from all sorts of occupational backgrounds, ranging from landscaping to teaching. No matter the job you’re coming from, the key to a successful trucking career is comprehensive Class A CDL training, which Roadmaster Drivers School of Tulsa offers.
Mrs. Beers noticed recently that many students have come from the construction, oil, and welding industries. These industries experience layoffs from time to time and leave people looking for work. Truck driving, on the other hand, offers job security, especially for Tulsans because of the demand in the area. As Mrs. Beers points out, everything gets shipped by truck at some point and demand for drivers is only growing.
With Tulsa so well connected by Route 66 and other major highways, students of Roadmaster of Tulsa are in a prime location to jump into the industry after completing a CDL training program.
Roadmaster of Tulsa, A CDL Training School That Cares
“We always have an open door policy so [our students] can see us at any time,” says Mrs. Beers. “It’s the dedication and patience that our instructors and staff give to them, the commitment we’ve made to them, that sets us apart.”
Graduates come back to show off the trucks they’re driving now, which is a great sight for students still in training. “We like for them to know that we’re still here for them… come by, pick up the phone and call us, we’ll be there. We’re very honored just to be a part of them, changing their lives.”
