CVCC's Truck Driver Training is provided as a partnership with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute in Hudson, NC. All classroom and behind-the-wheel training are conducted at the range located off Fairgrove Church Road (across from Catawba Valley Medical Center) in Conover.
The trucking industry continues to be a major employer in the United States, with almost 9 million people employed in trucking-related jobs. Over 3 million of these are drivers of tractor-trailers operated by over 550,000 interstate motor carriers. More than 80% of U.S. cities receive their goods exclusively from trucks.
We have a very successful job placement program with numerous local and national trucking companies recruiting our graduates during and after each class. During the past 12 months we graduated 222 students with 74% of those being pre-hired prior to graduation.
Graduates from our program can expect to average $50,000 or more their first year and up to $60,000 or better with one year of experience.
CVCC and CCC&TI can prepare you for a successful start in this in-demand career in less than nine weeks. See our next series of classes starting soon.
Catawba Valley Community College offers only day classes (Monday – Friday 8 am to 5 pm).
CCC&TI offers other class options at the TAPS Center in Hudson, NC, to accommodate your busy lifestyle.
