Message From the Director

Let us first start by stating that our programs are both challenging and rewarding to complete. All our programs have been specifically designed with you and the public’s safety in mind. Our programs emphasize hands-on learning as the primary vehicle to build your skills as a Professional Tractor-Trailer Driver. Make no mistake that proficiency, competence, and proper driver safety can only be attained with generous preparation time. Our very effective training system provides our students with efficient training hours while limiting the actual physical attendance at the school to only 4 weeks, 180 hours.

The 58 classroom hours are spread out over the 4-week course, so the learning experience stays fresh and interesting. You will be driving actual tractor-trailers in a matter of a few days. The classroom hours are very efficiently determined by need. Remember, your time here is limited and important; “behind-the-wheel” training time should not be taken up studying a lot of “filler” classroom subjects. The CDL PROS program is ideally designed for the busy, on-the-go student of the new millennium.

We are in constant contact with trucking industry personnel who advise and help us maximize the training content and quality thus providing our graduates an opportunity for success. Our students enjoy attending our modern 5-acre training facility.

What all this means to you is: VALUE AND EMPLOYER RECOGNITION. We offer up to date, no-nonsense programs with a very competitive tuition that is rarely met by any other institution. Your hard-earned dollars deserve the highest quality and quantity of professional training preparation that is possible. Compare our training fleet and unsparing training hours with our budget conscious tuition prices. I’m sure you will see the value in the training we offer you. So, welcome to National Training, future graduate. We look forward to working with you and helping you achieve your career goals.
