Essential: Before. Now. Always

The commercial truck driving industry is not only vital to a thriving economy, it is a vital part of our everyday lives. J-Tech Institute’s 4 or 8-week Commercial Truck Driving and CDL Program is helping students acquire the skills necessary to prepare for the Class “A” Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Examination and to launch successful careers as commercial truck drivers. To streamline the process even more for our students, J-Tech offers third-party CDL testing to all qualified graduates with a Florida driver’s license.

This program curriculum is designed to meet the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s (FMCSA) guidelines and includes a Workplace Readiness Seminar that provides assistance with resume development, interview techniques, and other employment related support.
