CDL class offered at New River CTC

[GHENT, W.Va.] A new Class A CDL class will begin Monday, October 2 at New River Community and Technical College’s Advanced Technology Center, 527 Odd Rd., Ghent.

“It’s rare for us to have openings for the class, as there is normally a waitlist,” Program Specialist Gloria Kincaid explained. “This is a great program for those looking to train for a new career as there is a high demand for Class A CDL drivers.”

The six-week course provides 180 contact hours of training to prepare students to pass the written and driving tests at a state examination site. The class is held Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Preregistration is required as limited seating is available.

New River CTC’s Workforce Education Division provides employable educational opportunities including noncredit courses, workforce development programs and customized training.
