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.
