Truck Driver Training School
The Truck Driver Training curriculum provides students with training to inspect and operate tractor-trailers and to assume driver responsibilities on the road and at pickup/delivery points. Emphasis is placed on vehicle inspections, defensive driving, range maneuvers, motor carrier safety regulations (DOT 380 -397 and a certificate for entry level drivers), trip planning, cargo handling, size/weight laws, general maintenance procedures, hours of service, and accident prevention.
All training, instruction, and testing are done at school facilities and in school-provided equipment. The program is sponsored by the North Carolina Trucking Association.
After satisfactory completion of all course requirements, students receive a Class A Commercial Driver License, DOT 380 certificate, and a JCC curriculum certificate.
The school also helps place graduates into industry employment. A Recruiter Day/Job Fair is scheduled in each class for valuable networking opportunities.
