CDL course begins June 4 at NFCC 

Required Orientation Sessions Offered in April & May

MADISON, FL– North Florida Community College and CareerSource North Florida are working together to get potential students ready to begin NFCC’s Commercial Driver’s License (CDL-Class A) certification program in June and on track to a new career in the trucking industry.

To be considered for the program, potential students must be at least 18-years-old and must attend an orientation session at NFCC to determine program and scholarship eligibility. Students who complete admission requirements and successfully enroll in the summer CDL program at NFCC may be eligible to have their tuition fully funded by CareerSource North Florida.  

“Our new CDL program can be completed in less than five months and opens up many good job opportunities to program graduates,” said David Dunkle, Associate Dean of Economic Development & Technical Programs at NFCC.
“We are working with CareerSource North Florida to help students with tuition costs and partnering with area trucking and logging businesses to help expand the program and connect graduates with area employers. This is a great program and opportunity for those looking for a new, in-demand career.”   

Training focuses on basic driving skills; material handling equipment; basic maneuvers such as backing, docking and handling; and safety measures. Students are taught to drive on various terrains, including city and country roads, and practice driving during both day and night time frames. Classes will be held at NFCC Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. with hours varying to compensate for night driving requirements.

Potential students are required to attend a one-hour NFCC CDL-Class A Orientation Session. Classes begin June 4. Orientation sessions will be held at the NFCC Career and Technical Education Center (Bldg. 13, RM 221) in Madison, Fla. on the following dates.
