A trucker’s work day is often far longer than the average person’s; a lot of the time, a single work day for a trucker might exceed the average for two other workers in another industry combined.
Such long hours don’t make it easy to do much on the road besides driving. However, trucking often produces unexpected downtime in places where there is nothing else to do. In addition, the world of online learning has never been so accessible.
If you want to learn new skills – both for professional and for personal reasons – consider browsing through online educational material. Chances are, there’s a course for that new skill you’ve been interested in acquiring. While your progress through such courses may be slow and unpredictable, you will likely enjoy the feeling of putting downtime to good use.
