“There are more jobs in professional driving right now than ever before,” said Gary Finch, program coordinator. “This program offers men and women the opportunity for a reliable, accelerated training program so that they can enter the work force, pursuing a steady, well-paying career. With the option of training in Marshall, this will also give a lot more folks access to the program.”
According to Finch, the new program in Marshall is a great option for residents of Indiana, especially those who live in or around the Terre Haute area, which is roughly 15 miles from the Marshall location.
