New River Community and Technical College will offer a Class A CDL training starting Aug. 15, 2022, at the college’s Advanced Technology Center in Ghent.
The Class A CDL training meets four days a week (Monday through Thursday) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for six-weeks. Students receive 180 contact hours of training to prepare them for the driving test, and students are able to test on-site in the college’s truck on the last day of class.
Before the first day of class, CDL students must have a full Class E license for one year and obtain a Class A CDL learner’s permit.
Tuition for the CDL class is $2,200 and the testing fee is $100. New River CTC’s CDL class is approved for tuition assistance funding through Workforce West Virginia’s WIOA program and Workforce HEAPS.
