Specialized CDL training at J-Tech

The United States of America is a big place. It’s no wonder that it takes a dedicated network to move goods and materials from one end to the other. This network is so huge in fact that it employs over 2 million truck drivers nationwide.* Are you ready to join this essential network? 

The Commercial Trucking Driving Program provides a 170-hour training program that is aligned with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) Entry Level Driver Training Regulation (ELDT) and the Compliance, Safety, and Accountability program (CSA). Students will learn the key fundamentals of the CSA initiative that include the (7) Behavior Analysis Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs): unsafe driving, fatigued driving, driver fitness, controlled substances and alcohol, vehicle maintenance, cargo related issues, and crash intervention while completing their training as an entry-level commercial truck driver.

All graduates will have developed the basic skills necessary to pass the Class “A” Commercial Driver’s License Examination and enter the truck driving profession. For the convenience of our students, the
J-Tech Commercial Truck Driving Program will offer third-party CDL testing on-site to all qualified graduates who hold a Florida Driver’s License so that students will not have to travel to an offsite location in unfamiliar surroundings. Students will be exposed to various recruiters during their training and will receive assistance with job placement. Students are encouraged throughout the training program to complete employment applications and to identify their future employer prior to graduation. Graduates should arrange to attend orientation with their new employer immediately upon passing the third-party CDL test.
