KITCHENER, Ont. — English as a Second Language (ESL) learners attending a special program designed to prepare them for trucking careers are seeking co-op experience inside trucking companies. Students in the program are working towards careers as truck drivers, mechanics, dispatchers, safety officers and other industry-related positions.
The students have experience speaking English at in intermediate level and are seeking to enhance their working knowledge of trucking language to help them pass the driver training and driver licensing requirements, or to go on to other related forms of higher learning.
Co-op placements are sought for six-week periods. Placements would ideally expose participants to many aspects of the trucking industry, including yard and loading; safety and compliance; routing and dispatch; shop/garage, and driving.
