Our History

Hopfe Training Centre was established in 2010 as Third Day Training Centre. Third Day founded by Eugen Prokott who ran the company with his wife Lotti. They ran the local single unit operation for several years in Weyburn before they passed ownership on to his former student, Jordan Hopfe, nearly a year ago before deciding to retire in New Brunswick to be with family.

In his new role, Hopfe continues to offer the same high-quality service and training while adding his own energy and ambition to grow the business and provide quality service to all the residents of Southeast Saskatchewan. Starting out as as a solo instructor and owner Hopfe is expanding but dedicated to providing local by hiring men and women within the space they are training. Dave McLeod, his instructor, was hired on in March of 2021 with Laurel Hopfe being brought on board not long after in June to help with administration. Hopfe is dedicated to the training of their students, considering them all to be an on the road family and is more than willing to answer any question from students, even those that have long since graduated.

 

 

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 Hopfe

Our Staff

Jordan Hopfe

Owner/Instructor

Jordan decided to leave his local roots to pursue the open road. With his solid background in long haul experience through the US he uses his real world experiences and his sense of humor and sarcasm to teach valuable on the road lessons. Focused on safety Jordan provides them with everything they need for their learning experiences and beyond.

Dave McLeod

Instructor

A local of the Southeast Saskatchewan area, Dave was not only born and raised here but also has his own farming operation. Local hauling for farmers, oil and gas sectors before buying his own truck. Taking his talents onto the open road as an Owner Operator with a US company hauling grain in Canada and the US. His ‘on the go’ attitude and an attention to detail makes Dave is a natural problem solver and back up specialist.

Laurel Hopfe

Administration

Laurel is punctual and a great resource for the team. Things would quite literally fall to pieces without her ability to organize, schedule, and keep the team informed. If you have a test booked, there’s a near 100% chance Laurel had to remind Jordan at least once.
