Register for “Truck to Success,” sponsored by PrePass. This three-day, in-depth training program provides step-by-step guidance from the Owner Operator Independent Drivers Association.

The OOIDA Foundation, the educational and research affiliate of OOIDA, is offering this seminar on Oct. 25-27, 2022. You can attend either in person at the Courtyard by Marriott in Blue Springs, Missouri, or online via Zoom.

This comprehensive curriculum features trainers from OOIDA and other trusted experts who work with owner-operators to bring you the latest information, according to the group.

“Truck to Success” will cover an array of must-know topics for aspiring owner operators, including:

  • Developing a business plan
  • Choosing a new or used truck
  • Equipment financing
  • Insurance
  • Whether to have your own authority or lease on to a carrier
  • New entrant safety audits and compliance reviews
  • Drug and alcohol testing consortium and requirements
  • Permits and licensing
  • Taxes and business structures
  • Brokers and factoring
  • Current issues affecting trucking

The in-person seminar cost is $495 per person, which includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks. Lodging is not included. However, participants can book a room at the Courtyard by Marriott and receive OOIDA’s corporate rate. Everyone is allowed to bring one guest to the seminar for $135.

The online seminar cost is $250 per login connection. Attendees may bring a guest for an additional $125 if that guest requires a separate login, meaning they will login to the seminar from another location differing from your own.
