Truck Driving Courses Statement

I.T.S. believes diesel truck driver training courses should respond to the needs of the Trucking Industry. The professional driver field is growing with demands from industry to move increasing volumes of freight with safety and efficiency. The importance and role of the driver in today's economy is best expressed by realizing that three (3) out of every four (4) tons of freight in the United States is moved by truck. Practically everything we eat, wear, buy and sell, is transferred by truck. The training curriculum at I.T.S. is responsive to these ever growing demands for qualified and safe drivers.
