On The Road With Our CDL A Driving School Program

Ginsberg’s CDL A Trainers

Meet our trainers Nick and Ed. They prepare future CDL A drivers with hands-on 1-to-1 training. Our experienced training staff offers a comprehensive training program focused on the theory and practical training necessary to pass DOT requirements. They love what they do and take personal pride in watching trainees with no experience gain the confidence, knowledge, and ability to become commercial drivers. This is what keeps our trainers motivated.

As a 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 Snow is one of our tenured drivers, who has advanced through different departments within Ginsberg’s Foods. From the Night Warehouse team, to out on the road as a CDL A driver, and then to training the future Ginsberg’s drivers. For those who have had the pleasure to work with Ed, they know he’s the consummate professional! Ed continues to excel as a delivery driver and trainer with his performance, service, and focus on safety. Ed emulates the Transportation culture with a strong focus on respect, communication, and service.
