J.V.I. — one of Canada’s best driver training facilities — was founded in 1994. It is owned and operated by former truck driver David Anderson.
Located at the former Air Force Base at Slemon Park, Prince Edward Island, J.V.I. has a fleet of well maintained modern trucks, trailers and heavy equipment. Extensive driving ranges and an obstacle course located on the former runways allow students ample time to master the shifting and vehicle handling skills required before hitting the road to train as professional truck drivers. On the road training is conducted province-wide during the day and at night. All heavy equipment training takes place at actual worksites throughout the province.
J.V.I. has modern classroom facilities with up-to-date training aids and materials. Most courses include First-Aid, WHMIS and Dangerous Goods training as well as complete training in Airbrakes, Vehicle Weights and Dimension legislation and Hours of Service regulations.
As a partner in the transportation industry J.V.I. offers courses which include supervised work experience with some of the industry’s top employers as well as conducting driver evaluations for a number of trucking companies including Midland. J.V.I. is also pleased to offer specialized training to government and industry as required.
Overall, J.V.I. has built a strong foundation and reputation as a training school with excellent staff, a superb training facility, modern equipment and dedication to you our client and the industry as a whole.
