If you’re interested in a career as a truck driver, the future is indeed bright.First Class Training Centre in Winnipeg is poised to help you take advantage of a considerable need for truck drivers in Canada.According to a 2012 report on the labour market in the trucking industry, the Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council has predicted a significant need for drivers in the upcoming decade, with a particularly large number of opportunities in the next year.Trucking is a very important business in Canada. Our largest trading partner is the United States, and we exchange most of the raw materials and finished goods that make up our trade with them by road. We have many industries like forestry, mining, and manufacturing that depend almost exclusively on trucks to export materials and bring products to market.Currently, there is a 4% vacancy rate in the industry (12,000 positions not filled) the majority of which are for drivers. Over the next ten years, 18% of current employees in the sector will become eligible to retire. The industry is expected to continue to grow as well, increasing the demand for qualified drivers. In the next year alone, it’s anticipated that there will be opportunities for approximately 35,000 workers.The job that is most difficult for trucking companies to fill is Class 1 drivers, so you can expect the highest number of opportunities to be in this area.To put yourself in a position to take advantage of growth in the Trucking Industry, you need training and a license. First Class Training Centre has instructors with considerable industry experience, small class sizes, and modern equipment, all of which make the school an excellent choice as the place to get your training.To find out how our training can put you in the driver’s seat, contact First Class Training Centre online or call Toll Free (1-(855) 632-5302.
