PAM Transport has launched a new civilian career transition program to assist military members and veterans in building a career in trucking.
Honor Road, the new program from PAM, an irregular route common and contract carrier headquartered in Tontitown, AK, provides one year on-the-job (OTJ) training designed for veterans eligible for V.A. education benefits, including the post 9/11 G.I. Bill.
“This program develops skilled, courteous and knowledgeable drivers while helping the nation’s military heroes re-enter the civilian workforce,” said Dan Kee, associate vice president of driver resources.
Honor Road is a three-part, one year, 3,710-hour, comprehensive program designed to provide OJT as an over-the-road truck driver. Veterans that qualify for this program will receive a tax-free monthly housing allowance (MHA stipend) from the V.A. in addition to regular driver pay from PAM Transport. There are exemptions granted for certain phases of Honor Road to service members that meet the criteria of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration Military CDL skills test waiver program.
