CDL Drivers are responsible for transporting different types of goods from distribution centers to customer locations using vehicles of certain weight and size. They are also required to perform inspections before and after a trip, and unload cased products from the trailer to customer facilities.
The American Trucking Association estimates a shortage of 50,000 truck drivers (opens new window). Companies are hiring and offering good benefits and pay. Take advantage of this opportunity to drive your way to a better life for you and your family.
Our CDL Class A license training program is a comprehensive 245-hour (7-week day course or 10-week evening course) classroom and behind-the-wheel program. The training covers DOT rules and regulations, pre-trip inspection, backing pad skills, and on-the-road skills. The final skills test necessary to receive a state license is administered by state-approved examiners. Funding options are available to those that qualify, as well as a tuition payment plan.
Completers who obtain their state license are qualified to drive tractor-trailers, dump trucks, tow trucks, delivery trucks, tanker trucks, and flatbed trucks.
