Your Road to Success...Let us Lead the Way
Are you looking for a career that will allow you to travel and see new places and meet new people; where the income, benefits and job security are excellent? Are you looking for a career where you are practically your own boss while on the road? The Truck Driver Training School at SVCC could be the beginning to your achievement of these career goals.
Main focal points during the course will include preventive maintenance, highway safety and handling hazardous materials. A good attitude is the key to successfully understanding the elements of these very important topics in the trucking industry. Bring a good attitude and you will probably leave with a better one.
The training school is a six week program with locations at Fort Pickett near Blackstone, Virginia and South Boston, Virginia. Students receive approximately 300 hours of training (15% classroom and 85% hands-on and observation). The class day is structured very close to a normal workday. Pre-trip inspections, keeping logbooks updated, and constant backing up and twisting and turning to maneuver the trucks will become habit.
