There is a strong demand for professional truck drivers, and this program can help you prepare for an exciting career on the road.

You’ll have lots of time behind the wheel learning how to maneuver trucks into tight parking spaces, through narrow alleys and up to loading platforms. You’ll develop backing and driving skills through classroom, lab, range and roadway experiences. You’ll also cover communications with fellow drivers, dispatchers, shippers, mechanics and law enforcement personnel. In addition, you’ll learn how to complete the necessary paperwork and appropriate inspections. You’ll have the skills you need to earn your Class A commercial driver’s license (CDL) and start your career.
