The Ivy Tech Truck Driving School has just begun classes for individuals living in the Dubois County region. Students can earn their CDL in four weeks.
Tuition includes 160+ hours of instruction and drive time, materials, drug screen, Department of Transportation physical, and CDL Class A License testing.
“Ivy Tech is excited to offer this opportunity locally,” said Kyla Dowell, executive director of Workforce Development. “With hundreds of local haul and over-the-road driving positions going unfilled in Dubois and the surrounding counties, Ivy Tech is offering this program to serve this major local need.”
Cost for the program is $4,100. Payment options include self-pay and third-party pay via employer sponsorship, grant funding, VA, WorkOne and other sources. Individuals must be 18 years old and possess a valid driver’s license to enroll. The school is Veterans Affairs approved. Full funding may be available to those who qualify through WorkOne.
