Full-Time Instructors



Bob started in the trucking industry in 1996 and joined us as an instructor at our Brandon location in December 2012. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity of passing on some of my years of experiences, to the next generation of drivers. As some things were passed on to me."



David joined Professional in 2015. "After spending my entire career in the trucking industry I am looking forward to a new adventure of passing on the skills that were passed on to me."



Dave rejoined Professional in January 2017 with 30 plus years of city and highway driving. "For me this is payback, having an opportunity to train the truck driver of tomorrow, giving back what was given to me. It is rewarding to meet students from all walks of life, helping them get their Class 1 licence and seeing the smile on their faces, knowing I played a part in helping them start their new career. I enjoy every aspect of being an instructor."



Back in 1996 I decided driving may be interesting. My city and highway training was with Professional Transport Driver Training School. Jump forward 22 years and in 2018 I returned as an Instructor. My hope for new drivers is that they feel encouraged to have a "safe and comfortable" career experience.
