Flatbed Truck Driver Training

TMC is known for its top notch, thorough flatbed training program. Our program is recognized as one of the best and is one of the few on-the-job truck driver training programs in the country approved by the Department of Labor as a certified Heavy Truck Driver Apprenticeship program. Drivers with their CDL are paid while training at TMC, from orientation right on through your over-the-road training with one of our certified flatbed driver trainers. For those drivers that do not yet have their Class-A CDL but want to drive for TMC, TMC offers a CDL training program.

Training for drivers with their CDL is conducted at our state-of-the-art training center in Des Moines, Iowa. The facility includes classrooms with computers for each student, a cafeteria, and spacious training yard where drivers will hone their driving and flatbed load securement skills. We are proud to offer our students four driving simulators. This latest technology allows us to simulate a lifetime of hazards in a two-hour session in a safe manner. During orientation drivers will enjoy staying at the TMC owned & operated Baymont Inn and Suites. Lunch is provided daily.
