CDL A Truck Driver Program
Weekday Training Program
This four-week truck driver course runs Monday through Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. and starts with 40 hours of classroom instruction that includes, but aren't limited to, hazmat training, log books and hours of service, coupling and uncoupling, vehicle inspection, map reading and trip planning, defensive driving practices, job search training and job placement assistance. Another 120 hours are dedicated to truck training.
Road and range training is designed to allow students to develop their truck driver skills in a controlled environment. These skills consist of: pre-trip inspections, backing skills, coupling/uncoupling of a tractor trailer, safe driving techniques and all other training as required for operation of commercial motor vehicles in accordance with the Ohio Administration Code 4501-7-11. Skills are tested by a certified CDL examiner.
The over-the-road driving portion of the truck driver program consists of training on all types of roads: city, county, state and interstate highways. This will allow our students to get valuable experience in handling a tractor-trailer in all types of traffic situations. Class size ranges from 15 students, which allows our school to provide the individual training that might be needed by our students. The cost of the four-week truck driver program is $5,500.*
