Built on quality work, integrity, efficient process, and a strong commitment to safety. Our goal beyond expert training is to prepare our students for a successful career path, improve their lives, and increase their opportunities.
By advocating for safe and defensive driving with the opportunities for ongoing education and support, Hopfe Training Centre believes that they will improve the reputation of the trucking industry and establish trucking as a sought-after profession for men and women of all ages and backgrounds.
Hopfe Training Centre was established in 2010 as Third Day Training Centre. It was founded by Eugen Prokott and his wife, Lotti. They carried on the local solo truck operation and when they retired, passed ownership on to one of his former students, Jordan Hopfe in 2020.
In his new role as owner, Hopfe continues to offer the same high-quality service and training while adding his own energy and ambition to grow the business into being able to provide training to anyone in South East Saskatchewan.
A Word from the Owner
“I value safety above everything. Every maneuver done in my unit needs to be planned and executed perfectly. Everything from driving forward, reversing, to something as simple as a turn takes many attempts and steps in order to do it properly and safely.
I pride myself on providing the most accurate real-world scenarios to my clients. I am not just a teacher, I am a mentor, which is why I’m happy to be included on their resumes and drive along with them before interviews to make sure they’re confident in their skills. They’re on the road to their future, so the least I can do is help them on their way to become safe and valued truckers in the industry.
I believe in professionalism and punctuality. Be on time and show me that you value mine, and I will do the same for you.”
Jordan’s rough and tumble long haul career throughout Canada and the US has instilled in him a commitment to public safety and truck awareness. He believes that is the responsibility of everyone to be safe on the road and has the experience and the resources to make sure that you are provided with all the tools and resources you need.
Pride in the career doesn’t even begin to come close to how Jeff feels about the industry. With over twenty years of experience in and around trucks, Jeff’s wide assortment of skills and tricks of the trade provide a unique and engaging view for everyone, young or old, to learn from. Born and raised around the truck, Jeff knows exactly what it takes to teach.
Jordan’s life partner, Delea quite literally makes his entire world go around. Detail oriented, tech savvy, and all around internet wizard. Delea makes everything at Hopfe Training Centre function as smoothly as it does. If there is any promotion you have seen, any test you have been booked for, or time that you see Jordan. She has designed it, called it in, or scheduled it.
