The semi-truck driving training program is designed to train for a career that offers freedom, stability and competitive pay.  You will develop skills in backing, turning and safe driving on both rural and suburban roads using a variety of training techniques including web-based and classroom instruction.

This course teaches the knowledge and skills required to safely operate a commercial motor vehicle (CMV)  Participants must obtain the Commercial Learner's Permit (CDL Permit), which requires passing the General Knowledge, Combination Vehicle and Air Brakes tests. After you obtain the CLP, you will need to register with the FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearing house (clearinghouse.fmcsa.dot.gov/).  You will also need to pass and pay for your Department of Transportation (DOT) physical and pre-employment drug/alcohol screening.   (To locate a Certified Medical Examiner go to  https://www.fmcsa.dot.gov/regulations/national-registry/national-registry-certified-medical-examiners) A combination of classroom, home study, practice range and road time prepares the student to perform vehicle inspection, basic control of the vehicle, backing up, defensive driving and hazard awareness. Upon successful completion of instruction and testing, students may obtain a Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL).
