Driver training revisited

I did a forum search without success. My wife would like to take a class or training for driving our class A. We both work so the training needs to be in the Northwest. Any suggestions where to look?

I would call a commercial truck driving school and see if they can help.

Contact your local school district to see if they have a driving trainer for their school bus routes. My transportation director always guides people to me when they want training. I am not in your area so cannot help you personally.
Make sure their instructor is certified not just a "driver" that they stuck with training. There are two of us that train that are certified and one that was just picked out of the drivers at large to help train.

Your profile says you're in Olympia but if you don't mind going up to the Seattle area, Gene McNaughton has credentials that can't be beat (just to follow up and be more specific on the link that RodgerS posted):

Just to follow up again and give you an even more specific link, the Shield instructors are either active or retired SPD officers.

Gene McNaughton specializes in RV training.

This link will give more information and the starting price for the RV package:
