Prime Hosts Annual Top Instructor and Trainer Banquet

The Prime Training Program helps new and inexperienced drivers get started in the trucking industry by providing the training and experience they need to become professional, safe truck drivers. Whether a person has their CDL but lacks experience or needs to earn their Class A from scratch, Prime offers options. The training programs utilize hundreds of trainers and instructors, that are active Prime Drivers, to help mentor and develop the skills of new drivers coming into the company each year.

Each year, Prime Inc. hosts the Top Instructor and Trainer Banquet to recognize the best of the best and celebrate their success and impact on the Prime Training Program. This year’s event was held on June 13th at the Oasis Convention Center in Springfield, MO. The event is by invitation only, and all top instructors and trainers were invited plus one guest along with non-driving associates from the Training Program Department and Fleet Managers of the drivers.
