“Teaching soft skills, cargo security, US regulations and more, we focus on promoting road safety and developing graduates that are widely accepted in the industry,” said Rick Mikula, program liaison officer at Humber. “Employers don’t hire a driver’s licence to drive a truck, they hire a person. Humber is in the business of developing people that meet industry needs.”
Humber offers commercial driver driving for licence class G to AZ (tractor-trailer), G to DZ (straight truck), and DZ to AZ (tractor-trailer from straight truck licence).
