Ram Van Early Arrival Program
Monday, August 21st to Friday, August 25th
If you're interested in a student job at Ram Van, there's a tremendous end-of-summer opportunity! Every year, the Ram Van office holds a paid week-long training program that leads right into a job at the Ram Van office for the fall semester.
Move-in early! If you live in Fordham housing, you will be approved to move in Sunday, August 20th.
Money! Get paid for a week's training and begin the school year with a well-paying and convenient job.
Hands-on instruction! Our administrators are all experienced driving safety trainers. All "early arrivers" get one-on-one behind-the-wheel instruction. By the week's end, you'll be a pro at driving a 15-passenger van all over New York City.
Get behind the wheel: You'll receive hours of hands-on training. Participants receive one-on-one instruction on how to drive with the highest standard of safety & passenger comfort.
Certified Instruction: New drivers will take a National Safety Council Defensive Driving Course and attend lectures by Fordham's experts on sleep hygiene, time management, and conflict resolution.
Navigate NYC: By the end of the week, all participants will be able to drive to Lincoln Center, Fordham's Calder Center for Biological Research, and both New York City airports.
All participants are required to meet the essential pre-requisites for University driver certification.
