At Nussbaum, we believe in using our talents and resources to make a positive impact. That is the heart of why we partnered with our local community college to launch the Nussbaum Trucking Academy at Heartland Community College.
It has been exciting to see the growth and impact of the Nussbaum Trucking Academy. Since launching in October 2021, we have been able to train and mentor over 58 new drivers. With the combined experience of some of our top-performing professional drivers and driving instructors, we have achieved a 100% success rate, with all our students earning their CDL and diving into new careers in the trucking industry.
While a handful of these students, 16 total to date, have transitioned into the Nussbaum family, most have started careers with other local companies. It is a pleasure to be able to serve our community in this way.
The Nussbaum Trucking Academy has been an incredible opportunity to brighten our corner of the world and bring quality training and education to new drivers.
