“We are excited about this partnership and the opportunities it will provide,” said Steve Brantley, director of driver recruiting for USA Truck. “Not all successful career paths take a traditional route. Our industry is wide-ranging and diverse, and the transportation sector offers limitless possibilities. USA Truck is always looking for talented, hard-working individuals who are passionate about building a rewarding career in a growing industry that is vital to keeping our country moving.”

The five-week program offers day or evening classes, with six starting dates each year.
