Short-term professional truck driving courses offered by NRCC

Oct 31 2018

Registration is open for New River Community College’s short-term professional truck driving course. During the hands-on training, participants will learn truck driving skills and take the Virginia DMV’s Class A Commercial Driver’s test to obtain a CDL credential.

One weekday session begins November 5 and runs through December 14, and will meet in Roanoke (class ID #11482). Another weekday session begins November 26 and runs through December 21, and will meet in Dublin (class ID #11480). The sessions will be held Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. 5 p.m.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of truck drivers is projected to grow six percent from 2016 to 2026. The average annual wage for truck drivers in Virginia is $42,780. At the start of 2018, just one truck was available for every 12 loads needing to be shipped, according to an industry analysis by DAT Solutions.

The regular price for the program is $4,500; but, with special state funding the discounted price is $1,500. Additional financial assistance may also be available.

This course is one of eight NRCC FastForward programs that provide affordable and short-term training through the Office of Workforce Development.

To register for one of the sessions, visit, Classes & Programs, Non-Credit Course Offerings and search with the class ID number.
