    several years ago my brother was looking in to doing the same thing
    and after a little inquiry he found out that several weeks or a few months
    he would be makeing very little wages and he wasnt able to do that at the time due to2 car notes , bills , and a mortgage payment.
    after the initial training he would have made pretty nice $$$$
    but it was a big step to take.
    maybe this thing with you is a bit different.
    i think his training was going to be in GA. too, as a matter of fact he has moved down there several years later after that.
    i think it was through or for the union pacific rr.
    good luck to you. it would be a great chance to get into a good paying position with good benifits and insurance.
