Truck driver training class
This class opens the door on an exciting new career field for successful graduates who will obtain DOT Class A permits, CDL licenses, and other necessary certifications to become truck drivers. “This is a great opportunity for students to learn a new career that offers a potential of great stability and nice income,” said Mark Franklin, director of Customized Training at Isothermal. “There are trucking jobs out there and we hope folks will take advantage of this program to get those jobs.”
The class will run Monday through Friday for eight-and-a-half weeks beginning on Monday, March 22 and ending May 25. The hours of classroom and on-the-road instruction will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
The cost of the course is $1,882 plus fees. Additional Department of Transportation licensing, permitting, physical testing and drug testing fees total an approximate $231, which is subject to change based on the DOT’s fee structure. Financial aid is available to cover the cost of the course through the GEER Fund for those who qualify.
The class is being offered in a collaborative effort with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute.
