The trucking industry has one goal – to keep Canada on the move. A vital contributor to our national economy, the Canadian trucking industry is a $30 billion business employing over 500,000 people. “Everything but babies are delivered in Canada by trucks”.
5th Wheel Training Institute Truck Driver Training graduates are an essential ingredient for this growing industry.

As new technologies revolutionize the industry, a different kind of driver is emerging as well. Entrepreneurs willing to work hard while developing their own opportunities are now the backbone of the industry. Higher standards of education are required and expected, and professional certification at every level is fast becoming the norm. The demands of a life on the road are many, but the rewards are great!
We maintain our own fleet of late model brand name trucks. Our diverse fleet features a range of standard transmissions to assure our graduates are capable of proper shifting. While trucks with automatic transmissions continue to make up a growing percentage of those on the road, the vast majority remain manually shifted. To maximize your flexibility in the workplace and be able to land that entry level position upon graduation, we still feel it essential that shifting be part of your skill set as a professional truck driver.
