Truck Driver Training Classes available at IVCC in Spring 2019

Illinois Valley Community College offers “Truck Driver Training,” a 10-credit course from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, beginning Monday Feb. 4. 

The four-week, 160-hour program combines classroom presentation and hands-on experience leading to a class “A” commercial driver’s license (CDL) with all endorsements.

Students will experience behind-the-wheel training as well as log book, map reading, backing, shifting and maneuvering skills – competencies that allow them to obtain employment in entry-level positions in the trucking industry. IVCC’s program also provides lifetime placement assistance and has a 99 percent placement rate.

Evening classes are from 5 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday for six weeks beginning Tuesday, Feb. 19.

CDL Refresher classes are available for drivers who need to update their driving skills before going back to a driving job or are required to retake the written tests to renew their CDL.

No prerequisites or prior experience required; financial aid is available. For information, call Bruce Hartman, program coordinator, at (815) 224-0266.
