  • Students must possess a CDL Learner's Permit prior to registering for the program. Students should contact their local DMV office to obtain their CDL Leaner's Permit.
  • To register for this class, you must come into our CDL office (Corron Room 105).

COURSE DESCRIPTION: 
With a national and local CDL driver shortage, trucking companies are hiring! Local, regional and national employers cannot find enough commercial drivers. 

LFCC Workforce Solutions offers Entry Level Driver Training to obtain a Commercial Driver’s License. Training is tailored to meet the requirements of the Entry Level Driver Training rule, which will mandate all CDL candidates attend a certified CDL school prior to the taking their skills test with the DMV.  Students will participate in classroom, range and On-The-Road Training.  Classroom training will cover topics such as basic control, safe operating procedures, distracted driving, hazard perception, vehicle systems and much more.  Range training consists of Pre-Trip Inspection, Straight Line Backing, Off-Set Backing, and Parallel Parking, all of which are required to pass the DMV skills test.  On-The-Road training covers speed and space management, and many other control topics.  Our program uses automatic transmission trucks. Upon satisfactory completion of the required curriculum and a demonstration of the skill set needed to pass the DMV exam, the DMV skills test will be scheduled. Once students pass the skills exam they will receive a student transcript and a Certificate of Completion.
 
LFCC offers Weekday and Weekend training programs:  
  • WEEKDAY PROGRAM runs Monday-Thursday, 7 am - 5:30 pm for six weeks. 
  • WEEKEND PROGRAM runs Saturday & Sunday, 7 am - 5:30 pm for twelve consecutive weekends. 
During training, multiple recruiters will hold recruiting sessions to discuss career opportunities.

WHAT IS EXPECTED:
Students are expected to dedicate themselves to the program with consistent, on-time attendance for the duration of the program.  Due to the accelerated nature of this program, both classroom and hands-on, it is imperative that students regularly attend class daily and on time.  The trucking industry is logistic based and requires its drivers to deliver goods in a timely manner, so we can't recommend a student to an employer if they had an attendance issue.  Within the program, students must adhere to the same timely schedule to ensure a foundation of good work habits are set prior to entering the workforce. Poor/unacceptable attendance/performance may result in (1) dismissal from the program, (2) repayment of $1,500 if they received FastForward funding and ultimately, (3) failure to obtain a CDL license.
