"Keep Mississippi Moving Training & Jobs Program" 


Employment of heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers is projected to grow 11 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average of all occupations. (U.S. Department of Labor)

Working as a commercial truck driver can be a rewarding career, especially for a person who appreciates playing such an important role in the national economy. Trucks move America, and as the commercial trucking industry succeeds, so does the national economy. America’s truck drivers play an important role in that process, especially with a shortage of qualified drivers across the country.
