Designed for the person with little to no commercial driving experience, this certificate program is Entry Level Driver Training (ELDT) rule compliant and provides everything a student needs to obtain an entry level driving position in the transportation 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 job offers prior to completion of their training.
Training is conducted at the Lake Land College Workforce Development Center, 5001 Lake Land Blvd., Mattoon, Illinois or the Lake Land College Eastern Region Center, 224 S. 6th St, Marshall, IL.
