SiriComm today, Aug. 1, announced that it has been named the preferred Wi-Fi network service provider for InCab University, the first online college-accredited curriculum designed specifically for truck drivers. The coursework is offered through a partnership with Chattanooga State and allows drivers to set their own educational pace through year-round open enrollment.
“We are delighted to work with InCab University to help bring college education to the millions of truck drivers in the U.S.,” says Bill Graham, chief executive officer of Joplin, Mo.-based SiriComm. “We are strong proponents of education and are proud to be associated with such an innovative program.” With more than 450 truck stop locations across the country offering SiriComm’s InTouch HotSpots, drivers will be able to complete their coursework entirely from the cab of their trucks during their mandatory rest periods.
“Nothing is more powerful to career growth than experience and education, and truck drivers deserve the opportunity for continuous education,” says Craig Fuller, CEO of InCab University. “SiriComm offers the largest Wi-Fi network developed specifically for the trucking industry. With our program, and the connectivity provided by SiriComm’s nationwide network of InTouch HotSpots, truck drivers can continue their jobs that keep them on the road for long periods of time, and still further their education. Communication has been one of the biggest challenges to providing programs like ours to the trucking industry, so we are excited to have SiriComm as a partner.”
