320 hrs | NEW PROGRAM!
The Commercial Vehicle Driving program will prepare students for entry-level employment as a professional local or over-the-road (OTR) truck driver. Upon successful completion of the program, which includes 1,000 miles of local and highway driving, Commercial Vehicle Driving students will receive a technical certificate, and will be able to test at our facility for the Class “A” Commercial Drivers License (CDL). Commercial Vehicle Driving is a job preparatory program that instructs students in:
• The proper loading and securing of cargo
• Coupling and uncoupling
• Backing of large tractor trailers, truck controls, and systems
• As well as double-clutching and shifting techniques of 9, 10, and 13-speed transmissions
They will practice concepts previously covered in the classroom and the basic procedures needed to safely operate large tractor trailers prior to being taken on the road. The remaining portion of the Commercial Vehicle Driving program will be spent on driving on all different types of highways.
