As of today, March 19th, our schools remain open for training with some special temporary measures.
In light of the current health situation, we have received permission from our regulatory partners to deliver classroom portions of our training via the internet with Remote Live Meeting software. Further, there are no known cases of the Coronavirus among members of the NETTTS community.
All NETTTS facilities are taking additional precautions during this time with increased, daily cleaning and sanitation procedures. This includes our trucks and tractor trailers at our training ranges.
We also practice the health safety procedures recommended by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) at our campuses, offices, and when we visit prospective students in their homes.
The CDC recommends the following:
- Practice regular hand washing with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds after using the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose our coughing/sneezing into your hands.
- After washing your hands, use a paper towel to turn off the water, turn off the light, or to open the bathroom door so as not to dirty your just cleaned hands.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your face with your arm when sneezing and coughing. If you use a Kellenx, use only once and dispose of it.
- If you are sick, stay home. Avoid spreading sickness to your fellow students or staff members.
- Stay away from shaking hands, fist-bumping, high-fiving, or otherwise touching other people’s hands wherever you are. For options, there’s the elbow bump or the Wuhan handshake.
Truck drivers are playing a vital role throughout this global COVID-19 outbreak by helping to ensure that food, supplies, and medication are available when and where it is needed. NETTTS is committed to getting more CDL drivers on the road and will continue to train the commercial motor vehicle drivers that will help get these critical goods to impacted areas. The health and safety of our staff and students is our top priority and we are working with local and state officials by following recommended guidelines during this time.
We are reacting quickly to local and federal guidance, and any changes in the days ahead will be posted here. Please continue to check back for updates or call us at 1-(800) 333-2888 with any questions.
