The Advanced Tractor/Trailer Operator Program includes the study of DOT safety rules and regulations. Homework is assigned on a regular basis. Students must be prepared for an intensive program of study. Basic driving skills are taught with various types of tractor/trailer combinations. Students are taught defensive driving techniques and the skills required for emergency situations. All students drive on the open road in highway, city and heavy traffic conditions. We place heavy emphasis on defensive driving, backing, safety and emergency procedures. Graduates receive a Diploma and a Commercial Drivers License for successful completion of our course.

We’re passionate about the industry, and we want that passion to extend to our students as well. That’s why we believe it is important to let prospective students know that truck driving – as with any other career – has its pros and cons.
