A word from our students…..
“Joe – I would like to take this time to say thank you to you and your staff at Skagit City Trucking School. Picking a school was a difficult task considering the options: Schneider, Werner, Swift or obtain it on my own, My Dime! Then to find a school that was reputable and could deliver something for my money and not waste time and money. I considered all the schools in the northwest and California and I can say without reservation I made the best choice. Your staff did a great job with the representation and training to prepare all of us for the “Big Day.” The results were outstanding with 100% success with raw material. Very good job! The instructors were professional and friendly (including Bill). I enjoyed interacting with all of them and found everyone at S.C.T.S. to be professional at all times as well as helpful and willing to take what ever time was needed to get us ready for test day. Again good job. In the future, I will recommend without hesitation anyone seeking a career in the trucking industry go to Skagit City Trucking School. Thanks again. Sincerely ~ Stephen Bellehumeur Feb. 2018
