SLEMON PARK, P.E.I. — The Canadian Trucking Human Resources Council (CTHRC) has handed out accreditation to Slemon Park, P.E.I.-based JVI Commercial Driving School.

JVI can now offer Earning Your Wheels-based training, the entry-level truck-driving program the CTHRC says is based on national standards; as well as the Owner/Operator Business Skills Course; and the Skills Upgrading Program.

The CTHRC, which is an independent not-for-profit organization incorporated in 1994, says a school must meet several requirements to earn the accreditation. Among these are up-to-date equipment; skilled, professional instructors; and “sufficient” in-class and in-yard training facilities.

As well, the council requires a driving school use good business practices. Only 22 schools in Canada are certified to offer its programs, according to the council.
