CDL Training


At Career Tech, you will learn many life skills that will make the difference between a job and a career, the difference between an employee and a professional, the difference between loving your work and hating your job, the difference between going through the motions of life running on a hamster wheel, and discovering that there is a purpose for your life.

Just think about it for a moment.

Does Your Current Job Offer Job Security?

  • How many truck drivers’ jobs can be replaced by computers or robots to haul freight over the open roads in an eighteen wheeler? The answer is ZERO!
  • How many Truck Driver jobs will be outsourced to foreign countries? ZERO!
  • Only people who qualify can be professionally trained to drive the big rigs!
  • Career Tech is building it’s reputation as a leader in training qualified, professional drivers. Our goal is for our graduates to be among the most sought after entry level drivers in the industry.

Areas of Study

Commercial Truck Driver Training (Class A Only):

The Commercial Truck Driver Training Program is a 160 hour certificate program that is generally completed within 4 weeks. The Commercial Truck Driver Training program is a fast paced program that works well for quick learners and students with prior experience in driving combination vehicles. The program consists of four courses of classroom lecture, safety theory, hands on training, yard skills, and vehicle inspection and vehicle operation. We train students to successfully pass the Florida Commercial Drivers License (CDL) Test and equip them to function as a licensed, entry level, commercial truck driver upon completion.

Advanced Truck Driver Training (Class A Only):

The Advanced Truck Driver Training program is a 320 hour certificate program that is generally completed in 10 weeks. The Advanced Truck Driver Training program is a slower paced program that consists of eight one week courses. The program goes into greater detail than the CDL program and provides additional behind the wheel training and meets the requirements of employers that require 320 clock hours of truck driver training. The Advanced Truck Driver program’s curriculum is based on the FHWA Model Curriculum and follows Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI) curriculum standards.

Career Tech is accredited through the COE, Council on Occupational Education, an accrediting agency based out of Atlanta, GA.
