The Commercial Truck Driving Program qualifies students to be tested by the State of Maine Department of Motor Vehicles for a CDL Class A and/or CDL Class B Commercial Driver’s Permit and a CDL Class A and/or CDL Class B Commercial Driver’s License, IF the requirements of mandated hours are met. Instruction is based on state laws, industry regulations, and equipment inspection required for licensing.
Since Federal law mandates that Commercial Drivers be pre-employment and random drug tested, students in the C.T.D Program will be required to submit to all required drug testing. Federal Law also mandates that a student be in possession of a current minimum Class C drivers license credential to be enrolled in this program.
Students who successfully complete the program will possess entry-level skills required by the trucking industry and are able to use the school’s truck and trailer to test for licensing. The employment and post-secondary training success rate for students completing the course is very high.
Students must be at least 16 years of age and must possess a class C driver’s license to enroll in this program.
Outcomes: Competency Certificate, Skill Profile, Maine Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Class A or Class B with endorsements, Fork Lift certification, MaineOxy Certification.
