Expert Interview with Harold Trent

Advice from Our USTDS School Director

When you’re looking at different CDL schools, or trying to figure out if truck driver training is something you should really be doing, you do a lot of research online. Google and Yahoo become your best friends, and you’ll search for it all: “Best CDL school near me,” “How long is CDL school?” “How much does CDL training cost?” and everything in between.

Sometimes, all you really want to do is hear from an expert…and maybe without really having to talk to them.

This is where Harold Trent comes in.

Harold is our School Director & Supervisor of Training at the US Truck Denver campus.

Trucking seems to run in his family – both of his parents are truck drivers, his uncle is a heavy duty truck mechanic, and after graduating high school, he decided to give it a shot as well.

He spent over a decade working primarily OTR (over the road) and regional with a small company and a few owner operators, learned the ropes of truck maintenance, and eventually made his way to a Director position at our school. From creating and developing new ideas for each of the different training programs, to making sure that our equipment is properly licensed and maintained for training, Harold is always on his toes, making sure everything is running and operating smoothly!

I tell our students this: Trucking is 35 hours a day, 45 days a month, 15 months a year, meaning that as long as people need food, shelter and clothing, trucking will not stop.”

Recently, Harold did an interview with Aleah from besttruckingschools.com, where he discussed the advantage of going to a truck driving school, the kinds of things a prospective student should look for in a truck driving school, and he gave his best advice for someone looking to become a truck driver.
