What makes MTI stand out from the others?

Our apprenticeship program takes place over 12 weeks, with professional and tenured trainers at the helm and provides a personalized, one-on-one experience for each student.  There is no cost for the program itself, however you will be responsible for your hotel stay, food and transportation. You will become an employee of Millis Transfer on your first day of training, earning $600 per week.  Once you complete classroom training, you will then earn $0.39 per mile when you drive with a trainer.  Upon successful completion of the program, you may be offered employment with Millis Transfer.  A $350 bonus will be paid at the completion of 90, 180, and 270 days of active employment with a $1450 bonus paid at the completion of one year of employment.
