THUMBS UP!

by Makhaddin, K.

As a managing partner for Amerixpress, Inc, I always hire certified dispatchers, and I count on NDFCA to provide professional and knowledgeable dispatchers. Their training course covers all topics a beginner dispatcher should know. I have to do very little training on the job!

5 STARS

by Michelle, K

I am a nurse by education and my husband is a truck driver. I took this course because I wanted to learn how to dispatch our truck on my own. This program was easy to follow, detailed and taught me everything I needed to know. Now I dispatch for my husbands trucking company and cover 6 other trucks! Thank you!
