December CDL training schedule announced

Garrett College is accepting applications for the next series of training courses for obtaining a commercial driver's license. Training for both Class A (in 30 days) and Class B (in six days) will be provided. Class A training, consisting of both training during the week as well as the weekend, will begin on December 10. Class B training will be arranged to fit each individual’s schedule.

GC’s skills-oriented program offers a professional truck driving curriculum for the purpose of qualifying students for entry level positions as drivers in over-the-road or local driving vehicles. The curriculum consists of classroom, range skills and over-the-road instruction to acquire the fundamentals for operating trucks and tractor trailers. Financial assistance may be available to qualifying individuals.

To assist students in obtaining their learner’s permit, a prep course will be held on a monthly basis (December 15 and 16). This two-day course will prepare students for the Motor Vehicle Administration (MVA), Class A or B Commercial Driver permit exam. The course includes instruction on the following topics: general knowledge, air brakes, combination vehicles, study and test taking skills. This course is taught through a combination of lecture, discussion and hands on activities.

Training is being held at the Garrett College Mountaintop Truck Driving Institute located in the old county garage located at Hilltop, three miles east of Grantsville, near the intersection of U. S. Routes 40 and 219, just north of interstate 68. For more information or to register for this course, please contact Terry Beachy at 301-895-4700 or terry.beachy@garrettcollege.edu.
