The U.S. trucking industry is thriving with nearly 10 million employees – you could be one of them. Students who complete the program can earn a high-wage income immediately. On the road, students experience one-on-one training, learning skills that are above and beyond the basic test requirements. Students who get CDL licensed at LCTI gain knowledge that make them stand out to employers. Lehigh Career & Technical Institute in partnership with the SAGE Corporation, offers a professional tractor trailer driving program to prepare students for careers in the motor carrier field.
The comprehensive program includes:
The training prepares graduates to obtain their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) and necessary endorsements, thus developing students for entry-level positions as professional tractor trailer drivers. LCTI’s 150 hour course curriculum is certified by the Professional Truck Driver Institute (PTDI). (Schnecksville Campus Only)
