All classrooms are well-lighted and ventilated for student comfort, and equipped for discussions and demonstrations. Audio-visual aids are used as an integral part of classroom lecture in all programs of study.
The truck driver program is taught by over-the-road instruction in well maintained equipment like that used daily in the trucking industry. Over-the-road instruction includes driving different vehicles of various weight configurations over state, federal, county and city routes within an approximate 50-mile radius of the school. The skill training, such as alley docking and backing, takes place at a specially designed and constructed close quarter maneuvering course.
SEC Training Instructor, Katherine Windom, was recently featured on MS News Now for giving advice about driving in icy conditions.
Katherine Windom, who works for SEC Training School in Flowood, has been driving 18 wheelers for years and is now training others how to use them.
"There are extra precautions that must be taken when driving in winter weather," said Windom.
