Transportation of material  and equipment is one of the most crucial jobs in the construction industry. Whether job sites are close or far, chances are that the materials needed for the day got there by truck. The MTECH Truck Driver Heavy program is a one year program that will prepare you with the knowledge and experience to maintain trucks, perform equipment checks, operate two and three axle trucks, operate four or more axle trucks, and driving off-highway trucks. 

The Truck Driver Heavy course consists of in class learning and an opportunity for an apprenticeship. 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.
