Trucking Business Education course offered by OOIDA

| September 30, 2022

OOIDA wants to help navigate those going through the change from a company
driver to an owner-operator, or simply help with the desire to have a more successful trucking
business

The Owner-Operator Independent Drivers
Association has noticed that for a variety of reasons, many small trucking businesses tend to fail
within the first year of operating. The OOIDA Foundation, which is the educational and research
affiliate of OOIDA, wants to help navigate those going through the change from a company
driver to an owner-operator, or simply help with the desire to have a more successful trucking
business.
To help take that step, the OOIDA Foundation offers the Truck to Success course. The three-day
course is designed for drivers looking to become a leased-on owner-operator or an owneroperator under their own authority. This short promotional video describes an overview of the
course.
The OOIDA Foundation also offers a free preview to help those on the fence in deciding whether
to attend. The “Cost of Operations” is one of the most popular topics and is just one of several
complete sessions in OOIDA’s business education course.
Those that attend will hear from trucking experts dedicated to helping drivers become successful
business owners. The training is designed to follow a logical path along the transition from a
company driver to an independent contractor.

This year’s course is scheduled for Oct. 25-27, 2022 in Blue Springs, Mo. For those who cannot
attend in-person, virtual attendance also will be available. The price of admission varies,
depending on your method of attendance.
