About Us

Southwest Truck Driver Training Philosophy

The Student Is:

  • The most important person on the campus. Without them, there would be no need for the training center.
  • Not a cold enrollment statistic, but a flesh and blood human being with feelings and emotions like our own.
  • Not someone to be tolerated so that we can do our thing, they are our thing.
  • They are not dependent on us; rather, we are dependent on them.

In 1999, Gary P. Williams unlocked the doors to Southwest Truck Driver Training for the very first time, with just a handful of family members and friends to help in getting the school rolling. Since then, Southwest has built a good reputation throughout Arizona, Nevada and the local community - as well as with employers. Southwest has locations in Tucson, Phoenix, and N. Las Vegas, with plans of expanding into other areas.


Where We Are Now

With over 13 years in business, Southwest continues to improve and modify our curriculum and programs in order to meet current industry needs. Through things we learn in our daily operations, as well as both student and staff feedback, we continue to make improvements on a regular basis. Southwest's Road and Range Training is conducted in modern equipment using multiple transmissions, as well as empty and loaded dry van and flatbed trailers. All range training and CDL testing is done on site, making Southwest a true school-to-work training facility.
