Tuition Costs and Fees for CDL Training and Heavy Equipment Operator Courses
Our tuition costs are quite reasonable, when you consider the amount of salary that can be earned once our graduates have received their CDL license or Heavy Equipment Operator Certificate. CDL truck drivers averaged $43,680 a year in 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Labor1, and that has probably gone up since then because of the shortage of qualified drivers.
This means that you could earn enough extra pay in the first year or two of driving a truck to pay for your training, and then some. That makes truck driver training a worthwhile investment for those who want to get ahead in life and start making real money.
The same holds true for the graduates of our heavy equipment operator course. The average salary for that occupation in 2018 was $46,900 per year, according to the U.S. Department of Labor2. Once again, training to become a heavy equipment operator turns out to be a great investment in your future earnings ability.
Below are the total tuition costs and other fees for our various Truck Driving Training programs and our Heavy Equipment Operator course.
