Professional Driver preparation is a serious and rewarding undertaking. The quality of our program reflects our commitment to you and your investment in your future. Our program provides 160 hours of intensive, relevant training both in the classroom and over the road. We provide state-of-the-industry rigs typical of what you will be using in your career and a low student-teacher ratio to ensure that you get exceptional instruction and experience.
Other programs may offer comparable hours of training. Many programs include substantially more hours. However, these hours are spread over many weeks or even months. The additional hours included in other programs may be linked to academic requirements, college policy, or other factors that do not provide increased benefits to you. We are confident that our program will provide you the skills you need to be successful. NIACC’s Professional Driver Prep program is an intensive 3-week program that gets you on the road earning money sooner. Students MUST be prepared for up to 11 hour days and Saturdays (if needed), to accomplish the objectives and training needed. Why is that important?
