Instructional Program (CIP)
This program is designed for the needs of students with no prior knowledge or experience in truck driving. The objective is to provide students with an in-depth look at the trucking industry and a thorough introduction to long haul truck driving. The program is structured to provide students with basic knowledge and practical skills necessary to take the Class A CDL test and assist in preparing them to become entry level over-the-road, regional or local drivers of tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles. The Class A CDL is administered by the State, and can include doubles and triples, tank truck, and hazardous materials endorsements. Successful completion of the program qualifies graduates to work in a co-driver/driver trainee position, although some graduates may be qualified to work as a solo driver, depending on individual skill development and employer requirements and policies. The program takes approximately 4 weeks to complete, and includes 150 clock hours of instruction, including 104 hours of class and lab, 44 hours of behind the wheel driving time and the CDL test.
