South Piedmont Community College will offer a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) course this spring at its Tyson Family Center for Technology in Monroe, and under-employed or unemployed students may be eligible for 100 percent funding through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). For more information on WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) funding, call 704.283.2589.
Graduates of the course who pass the CDL test can expect an average salary of $50,000 or more their first year and up to $60,000 or more with one year of experience.
An informational orientation session will be held for the class on April 3 at 10 a.m. at the Tyson Center (3509 Old Charlotte Hwy., Monroe). Classes will run weekdays between April 25 and June 28. The cost for the course, which is offered in partnership with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, is $1,858, a fraction of the cost associated with similar programs in the region, and it includes all instructional materials. For those not qualify for WIOA funding, tuition can be split into three payments.
The trucking industry employees nearly 9 million people nationally, but many more are urgently needed. Locally, the need for men and women with a CDL to fill these important jobs is reaching critical levels. That’s why many local and national trucking companies recruit from SPCC’s truck driver training graduates—which have had a 100 percent placement rate, many of them offered employment before completing the course.
