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 student – one truck 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:

  • Driver skill development
  • Applied safety regulations and procedures
  • Equipment maintenance and proper loading techniques
  • Intra- and inter-state regulations

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).
