FORT ERIE, Ont. – Zavcor Trucking is getting into the driver training business. (2017)
The company announced it is launching the Zavcor Professional Driver Training Academy in February. First classes will begin on March 20, 2017
“There are endless opportunities for men and women entering the industry,” said Kirk Zavitz, head of Zavcor Trucking. “As we looked at those opportunities, we decided to take the natural next step to control our destiny as we continue to grow our company. There are massive labour opportunities in the transportation industry. AZ drivers are in demand. Truck driving is a respected, and fulfilling career and offers high paying jobs for both genders.”
Zavcor is an approved Registered Private Career College and says it will deliver a curriculum that exceeds Ontario’s impending mandatory entry-level training requirements by 80 hours.
When Zavcor was first considering entering into this sector of the industry, they turned to the industry professionals at KRTS Transportation Specialists Inc. for some guidance and advice in the school business. This led to a joint business venture. Matt Richardson, Manager of Operations and Sales at KRTS Inc. says this was a natural fit for our two companies. We share similar core values, and both organizations know how important people are to the success of any business.
Graduates of the program will have the opportunity to work for Zavcor or another of the company’s carrier partners.
