NRCC offering short-term professional truck driving course

Registration is open for New River Community College’s six-week professional truck driving course. During the hands-on training, participants will learn truck driving skills and take the Virginia DMV’s Class A Commercial Driver’s test to obtain a CDL credential.

A new session begins Sept. 14 and runs through Oct. 25. The session will be held Monday through Friday in Dublin from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Training and certification can be obtained for one-third of the cost through the Workforce Credential Grant (WCG). Additional financial assistance is available for qualifying students. More information about WCG can be accessed at www.nr.edu/workforce.

To register for the session, visit www.nr.edu/workforce, Classes & Programs, Non-Credit Course Offerings and search with the class ID number, 5640. The last day to register is Sept. 8.
