160 Driving Academy celebrated the 10th anniversary of the company's very first CDL training academy location in Peoria, Illinois.
"Peoria is a special place for us. It's sort of hard to believe that we've been doing this for ten years and now we have 140 schools throughout the nation. It's unbelievably satisfying to see what we're doing as a company for so many people in need of jobs and getting into the trucking industry," said CEO Steve Gold. "There's no shortage of demand for this vocation and everyone wants well-trained, safe, drivers, and we are honored to provide this to the industry and the workforce."
The event for the Peoria Location occurred on Aug. 31, according to the company's news release.
Commemorating the milestone achievement, notable attendees included Gold, 160 Driving Academy central region leadership team, the branch team for the Peoria location, the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, local employment partners, media outlets, and several current and graduated students.
Starting salaries for 160 Driving Academy graduates (on average) start at $65,000 per year, according to the company.
