The Truck Driving Academy program offers students a wide-ranging curriculum and training process to prepare them to pass the CDL exam. Daytime classes are available Monday through Friday. Training consists of classroom and behind-the-wheel training in St. Clairsville, Ohio from state-certified instructors, licensed by the Ohio Division of Public Safety.
“Our CDL program offers short-term training for a career pathway in transportation, which is a vital part of our economy locally and across the state,” said Melissa Rataiczak, Director of Workforce Development and Advancement. “Having the ability to train CDL students on-site in St. Clairsville, Ohio is a great opportunity for them to train behind-the-wheel locally. With registration for CDL classes now open, successful students will receive their CDL permit, classroom, and on-the-road training, CDL driving exam with truck provided, and job placement assistance.”
