Commercial driver’s license (CDL) training

Get on the road to a new career with your Class A CDL

You’ll get there in high gear with truck driving training that’s just eight weeks or less – starting off with classroom sessions followed by behind-the-wheel range and open road training.

You’ll get a minimum of 200 hours of Class A Tractor Trailer training with 48’ length trailers. All trucks are outfitted with 10-speed non-synchronized manual transmissions.

You’ll also be prepared for hazardous (H endorsement) and doubles and triples (T endorsement) written exams at the same time.

CDL permit not required to start.

Two CDL training options

Option 1
Non-Credit Class A CDL:
The cost of the non-credit truck driving program is $5,755.20. This option is NOT eligible for federal financial aid. You may qualify for funding through state or local programs, and we encourage you to contact the local Ohio Mean Jobs Center about possible supplemental funding: https://jfs.ohio.gov/owd/WIOA/map.stm.

Option 2
College Credit Commercial Driver’s License Career Enhancement Certificate (CEC):
This for-credit option includes all training in Option 1, plus three additional classes (16 credit hours total). You’ll get in-demand skills and certifications for the transportation industry that also are stackable into the associate of applied science two-year degree program in industrial technology. Students enrolled and intending to complete the CDL certificate may apply for financial aid.

Day and evening tracks are available for both options.
