Curriculum

The Truck Driver Training course at Central Tech utilizes classroom instruction, range and road driving, and practical application of skills used in highway driving. Our ratio of only two students per truck allows each student to develop proficient driving skills.

Upon graduation, students will possess a Commercial Drivers License with a thorough working knowledge of commercial vehicle operations, air brake systems, safety practices, and DOT rules and regulations.

Upon successful completion and if all requirements are met, each student will receive a certificate of completion from Central Tech Truck Driver Training.
