Designed for individuals with little or no commercial driving experience, this program includes everything a student needs to obtain an entry level driving position in the trucking industry.
The Lake Land Commercial Truck Driver Training Program works with many trucking companies that will pre-hire students. Truck driving is one of the few occupations where students who complete training are almost certain to go to work immediately. Most students receive several job offers prior to completion of their training.
Training is conducted at the Lake Land College Workforce Development Center, 305 Richmond Ave. East, Mattoon, Illinois. For more information about the program, job opportunities and payment options, contact the program coordinator at 1-800-789-1282 or visit the website.
