Ginsberg’s CDL A Driver Trainers

Meet Nick and Ed, our dedicated instructors for future CDL A drivers. Their role is to provide personalized training to aspiring truck drivers, combining classroom sessions with 1 on 1 on-the-road practice. Our team of highly skilled and experienced trainers is committed to delivering a comprehensive CDL A training program that emphasizes theoretical understanding and practical road skills, meeting all DOT requirements. They are genuinely passionate about their work and find immense gratification in witnessing trainees, who start with no prior experience, grow in confidence, knowledge, and proficiency to pursue a successful career as commercial drivers. This is the true driving force behind our trainers’ dedication.

As a full time driver trainer, Nick has been integral to the TPR driver training process getting drivers prepared to obtain their Class A in a few months, which is impressive! Nick’s duties include often being the first one in the door at 3:30 AM in order to facilitate dispatch, then he focuses on training. Nick works with trainees to become experienced with road test prep, DOT pre-trip inspections, TPR training and documentation, and on-the-road training. Nick also has a great military career in the US Army Infantry including 3 solo parachute jumps, 1 Afghanistan tour (as a dog handler), and 1 Iraq tour, and was selected for Army Recon Scout Platoon.

Ed continues to excel as a delivery driver and trainer with his performance, service, and focus on safety.
