Class A CDL Course Breakdown
Many of our CDL Now! graduates have job offers already extended to them from one or more trucking firms by the time they receive their CDL. That’s because trained truckers are in such high demand due to the nationwide truck driver shortage, and because of the great reputation of our school within the industry. During this CDL training program, you will have 180 total hours of training.
