Heavy Equipment and Trucking

The Heavy Equipment and Trucking program is open-entry/open-exit, which is designed so students can enter when convenient for them.

Skills are competency-based meaning a skill must be mastered before advancing on to the next skill. The program emphasizes hands-on training with support classes directly related to training.

Students interested in obtaining the Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) can register for the Trucking program at any time on an open-entry/open-exit basis. The job market is very much in need of qualified drivers with a CDL and truck driving training. There are many trucking companies that have hiring programs for students with these qualifications.
