DEL RIO,TX–At times searching for a new career can be tough, but your in luck, we have what you want, a career in Truck Driving. STAR Career Training will give you a new way of life!

"Students can come in and get there CDL to begin their new career in truck driving,"said Rene Bermea, Director of STAR Career Training. 

The business began when a highschool friend was in search of a CDL and approached Bermea about learning. Bermea stated that a week later his friend no longer showed up for his training.  A few days later he saw his friend and asked him where he had been, he responded that he had gone to the workforce and they were paying for him to go to school in Uvalde, for truck driving.

Bermea said that was the moment when the idea was formulated.  Bermea, having a business in border crossings for factories across the border that was no longer producing due to change in logistics with Mexico, he decided to take a leap of faith and start his own business as a CDL instructor.

"It is very satisfying to see someone come in who has made minimum wage and leave here and make 50 to 60 grand their first year," Bermea said.

"We have companies that hire directly from the school."  

Current companies that hire directly from the School are:  Covenant, England, Warner, U.S. Express, and many more for over the road, long distance careers.  For local: Basic, Globe, Halliburton, and many more.    

STAR Career Training, located at 1488 Cienegas Rd, is now offering courses.
