Getting a CDL for free tuition is a good deal. Trucking is one of those jobs that isn't moving to China and there is a projected shortage of truck drivers for the next 15 years.Saw an industry blurb that Swift Transportation Co. Inc., (http://www.joinswift.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;), is providing 1,000 full scholarships to Veterans to attend a Swift Academy of their choice. The Phoenix-based company is offering full scholarships to veterans with a 1-year commitment, as well as a $1,000 tuition discount to Selective Reserves and National Guard with a 1-year commitment. . . .
. . .
Participants and those eligible must have been separated from service within the last 30 months or be an active member of the Guard or Reserve to qualify for the Swift Veterans Scholarship Program. Swift driving academies are located in Phoenix; San Antonio; Millington, Tenn.; and Lewiston, Idaho.
Anyway, thought a veteran may need a job or know a vet who does.
(I don't work for Swift and have no vested interest in this.)
