Along with the practical training, there were also some transportation topics like hours of service, log books, fire safety, and fuel efficiency covered. “The folks at Superior were great hosts for me” said Roberts. “Heather Ross took care of everyone as though they were family. Working with Mike was a tremendous experience and his dedication and desire to learn made my job very easy.” Mike also enjoyed his learning experience with Dan stating. “Dan was the best instructor you could have sent, thank you.”
