FFE Transportation Services, Inc. Celebrates Student Truck Driver Training Program

DALLAS, Jan. 31, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FFE Transportation Services, Inc. (Nasdaq:FFEX) is proud to announce the grand opening of FFE Driver Academy in Fort Worth, TX on January 31, 2011. Licensed and accredited by the Texas Workforce Commission, the academy will provide comprehensive training for individuals with no prior tractor-trailer experience. The curriculum includes all the required information and training necessary to acquire a 'Class A' Commercial Driver's License (CDL). The school goes well beyond the basic requirements for a CDL by providing extensive behind the wheel training and classroom instruction, including food safety and cold chain compliance, to ensure each student develops the professional skills necessary to operate safely and maintain FFE customer service expectations. 

John Hickerson, Executive VP and COO, of FFE Transportation Services, Inc. said, "We are very proud of our Academy staff and new facility. Our vision was to establish a best-in-class student program and career succession opportunity. It is very gratifying to offer entry level candidates the most affordable opportunity to become a highly skilled and successful professional driver or owner-operator. The FFE Driver Academy is a core strategic initiative as we continue to grow our capacity to meet the increasing demands of our customers."

FFE's Driver Academy will provide a unique CDL training program for new drivers, tuition-free. This ensures that new drivers are able to learn all the skills needed to be successful, without having to worry about how to pay for school tuition. Once the truck driving school course has been completed, the drivers begin working within the company, cutting out the problematic job search for new drivers. Graduates will go into the company's driver training program for specific over-the-road training with certified FFE Driver Trainers. Upon successful completion of training the Trainee will be upgraded to a first-seat driver. After four months of satisfactory performance as a company driver, FFE provides a very convenient opportunity to start his, or her, own business as an Owner-Operator partner. 

Located in the heart of the industrial district of historic Ft. Worth, TX, our campus sits on 7 acres of property, and is specially designed to meet the needs of new driving students.  Students are housed comfortably on site where they enjoy many amenities, such as: laundry facilities, refrigerators, microwave ovens, cable TV, study hall, computer lab, and more.  Our spacious backing range allows students to receive quality, on site instruction.  The location of our school is ideal for providing students with all of the tools they need to get their Class-A CDL and become a safe, professional driver.  Our instructors are approved by the Texas Workforce Commission and have a minimum of 3-years' experience, which ensures that each student receives the highest quality training available in the industry.
