Truck Driver Training Program to resume in LincolnFebruary 25, 2021
Heartland Community College (HCC) is planning for a new round of Truck Driver Training with class sessions to be held in Lincoln.
Truck Driver Training runs year-round at Heartland’s Normal campus. Now, the program is again setting up shop on Heartland’s Lincoln campus – an effort that will broaden the local reach and accessibility of the program’s benefits.
The first Lincoln section of Truck Driver Training (TDT) begins April 19 and runs for four weeks, meeting Monday-Friday from 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.
In this program, participants will earn their CDL through both classroom and behind-the-wheel training. No previous experience is required, but you must have a current driver's license issued by the State of Illinois, be 18 years or older, and complete and pass the Department of Transportation Physical and Drug screening.
“HCC is excited to bring back TDT to Logan County in 2021,” said Heartland Community College Lincoln Director Kristi Powell. “We last ran the class in Lincoln in November of 2019, so it is great to bring back more local opportunity for area students.”
Registration can be completed at HCC Lincoln (2201 Woodlawn Rd.) and those interested are encouraged to begin the enrollment process as soon as possible.
