The Centre de formation du transport routier Saint-Jérôme (CFTR) opened in 1976. In those early days, the Centre took in about 100 students per year and had about 12 trucks in its driver training fleet. Today the CFTR is one of only two designated public training centresofferingheavy vehicle driver training in the province. In the past 35 years, the CFTR has acquired a reputation as the top ranking institution providing training for transportation related occupations.
The CFTR awards diplomas to more than 800 graduates per year and now has an equipment fleet consisting of over 250 makes and models of trucks and semi trailers corresponding to the vehicles used in the trucking industry. Because of its extensive expertise, the CFTR is regularly asked by many partners and associates to participate in various projects.
