[GHENT, W.Va.] New River Community and Technical College will offer two Class A CDL classes this summer at the college’s Advanced Technology Center, Ghent. The upcoming class dates are June 11 and July 30.

“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,” explained Program Specialist Gloria Kincaid.  “There is normally a wait list, therefore, we have scheduled two classes to fulfill the need.”

The six-week course provides 180 contact hours of training to prepare students for the driving test at a state examination site. The classes will be held Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Preregistration is required by June 6 for the June class and July 25 for the July class as limited seating is available.  Students must have a Class A CDL learner’s permit prior to the beginning of the class.

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