Our Commitment to Student Veterans

We here at SWTDT not only strive to provide a quality training program to our Nations Hero’s but, we also have numerous Veterans on our corporate and campus staffs.  Our Veterans have been where you have been and are experienced not only within the trucking industry but,  serving in Uniform as well.  We are familiar with the unique challenges that Veterans experience and strive to guide our Nation’s Hero’s through these challenges at every step of the way.  Our students are and always will be our first priority.
