IVCC ‘Truck Driving Training’ begins this month

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, April 29.

The four-week, 160-hour program combines classroom presentation and hands-on experience leading to a class A commercial driver’s license 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.

Classes meet from 5 to 10 p.m. Monday through Friday for six weeks beginning Tuesday, May 13.

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 more information, call Bruce Hartman, program coordinator, at 815-224-0266.
