Prime Inc, North America’s most successful refrigerated, flatbed, tanker, and intermodal trucking company, hosted its annual banquet to recognize its top CDL Instructors. This year, the company decided to add recognition of TNT Trainers to the existing event which was held at the Oasis Convention Center in Springfield, MO on April 13th. CDL Instructors are responsible for training someone to earn their Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). TNT Trainers are responsible for training someone who has obtained their CDL. Both instructors and trainers are vital to the success and safety of Prime’s growing fleet and Prime Training Program. If someone is completing the entire Prime Training Program, they will have both a CDL Instructor and TNT Trainer, sometimes the same person.

“I would like to congratulate all of the instructors and trainers who qualified and were invited to the instructor and trainer banquet. This year, we recognized the largest group ever. Although we had only 4 individuals who received first place, the entire Prime group is the very best in the industry. Congratulations to all who were invited to attend and thank you for all you do,” stated Stan Kasterke, Prime Training Program Manager.

In 2016, the Prime Training Program helped 2,618 people from across the country obtain their Class A CDL. The Top 15 CDL Instructors recognized at the event assisted 256 of those people earn their license this past year.
