CDL Program Description
Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers transport goods from one location to another. Most tractor-trailer drivers are long-haul drivers and operate trucks with a gross vehicle weight (GVW) capacity—that is, the combined weight of the vehicle, passengers, and cargo—exceeding 26,000 pounds. These drivers deliver goods over intercity routes, sometimes spanning several states.
Hocking College's Commercial Truck Driver Training School offers truck driver training in a variety of course models to fit any timeline. The training program courses vary in intensity and duration and can be utilized by new students, existing students, and corporate sponsors.
Tuition includes DOT physical, CDL permit, CDL test, and license fee. Grant funding is available through the Ohio Department of Higher Education Short Term Certificate Grant Program.
Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are statements of what a student will be able to do when they have completed a program. They represent the knowledge and skills a program has determined are most important for students to gain from that program and include both the Success Skills (institutional outcomes) and Program Outcomes. SLOs are specific and measurable so the program can accurately assess the degree to which students have achieved each outcome, and they align with college and institution mission and values. Data on the achievement of SLOs is used to make improvements in the program and increase student success.
