Commercial Driver Training

The STA offers a variety of training courses created specifically for the commercial trucking industry.

A Proactive Industry Resource

Drivers are required to successfully pass certain courses in order to operate certain types of equipment such as long combination vehicles (LCVs) and haul some types of products, such as dangerous goods.

Other training courses help carrier companies and their drivers understand regulations that govern the trucking industry, such as Hours of Service and Cargo Securement.

The STA also offers customized training courses developed to meet the specific needs of companies. Every trucking company is different and requires education on different topics for different types of operations and the STA can create custom courses to ensure that all of the training needs of the company are met.

Training courses are offered in a variety of settings and locations throughout the province. The STA office at 418A McDonald Street in Regina has a training classroom where scheduled and customized courses can be held. On-site courses are also available.
