The 90-Day Trucking Apprenticeship Challenge kicks off on December 16 and seeks to promote the apprenticeship model as a solution to get more well-trained drivers on the road. The Challenge asks employers who are ready to step up to commit to accelerating the development of new apprenticeship programs and help expand existing ones through new employer and labor partnerships to support recruitment, retention and return on investment in the trucking industry.
