This school is a rip off I finished almost 4 weeks after I was supposed to because the equipment issues. Then the testing process was a joke. We had to drive all the way to Gainesville ga to test that's almost 3 hours away from Austell.

going in to this three week course I was convinced that I would fail and that the whole thing was a waste of my money. But, by the end of week one which is classroom only, my confidence began to build as I realized that my success was dependent on accepting that hard work will pay off.Not to mention very strong encouragement from the classroom teacher William Johnson whose fun presentation helped this exhausted student get through the week .
The next two weeks are driving exercises such as backing skills, shifting and general control of the vehicle. My teacher for these two weeks was Helen Speers, who did an excellent job of communicating the job at hand. She was very patient with the three of us assigned to her truck and properly budgeted her time so that all of our weaknesses could be addressed.
Another positive thing to point out is that the other two students(Jose Rodriguez and Ron Fortner) that I was placed with could not have been any better. I don't know if this was deliberate or just an accident but we all got along great and spent all of our free time helping each other with the pre-trip inspection and just talking about driving skills, helping us all become better students. I wish I could be in this environment all the time. All of us passed and are now class A cdl drivers, including a return student Imagene (Emma Jean yet another good match for our group) giving Katlaw and Helen Speers a 100% pass rate.

Pros: convient location, solid course set on achieving one goal

Cons: recruiter should mention WIA program availabilty

After paying $2495.00 for a 3 week course to obtain a CDL License, my husband was told they could not "place" him do to the fact that he had a 9 year old felony on his record. Something they knew before they took our money but failed to mention in order to get our money!! AND...currently all of the companies that they work with for "job placement" are not hiring people without experience!!!!! Are you serious???? How can you "place" your students when the companies won't take them!!??!! Big Ripoff!! Very uncaring staff!! Money hungry! It's been almost a year and no job yet! Do yourself a favor and look into going through training with a trucking company directly! Cheaper and once you are done you work with them!
