Did you know that you are only four weeks away from a high paying career in the trucking industry? The professional commercial driver industry has seen rapid growth and drivers are in high demand. In the four week Commercial Truck Driving (CDL) training program you’ll set the foundation for a successful and exciting career. Your time in the program will include classroom and hands-on instruction in everything from truck components and inspections, to  backing skills, to road safety and more.

Learning modules include: basic and advanced driving skills, truck components and operation, cost-efficient operation, rules and regulations, paperwork, personal health and safety, and driver professionalism. You  will also log over 60 hours of on-the-road driving and observation in preparation for a career with a wide variety of local and over-the-road carriers.

Note: Employment in professional driving may depend on the ability to meet employer and/or licensing requirements (i.e., health and drug screening, a satisfactory driving record, driving test, etc.), which is the student’s responsibility. Endorsements for Doubles, Triples, and Tankers are included in the program fees.
