CC pushes back CDL program start

Clarendon College is pushing back the start of the CDL Driving Program to September 18 and is shortening the program from a 16-week program to an eight-week program to better meet the needs of students.

Classes are set to begin September 18 at CC’s Downtown Educational Center in Clarendon and will be held Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The cost of the eight-week program is $3,000.  Because this is a noncredit course, traditional federal aid is not available.  Career Training loans are available through Sallie Mae, and a payment plan is also available through the college.

The CDL Training program will focus on basic driving skills, material handling equipment, basic maneuvers such as backing, docking, and handling; and safety measures.  Students will be taught to drive on various terrains, including city and country roads, and practice driving during both day and night time frames.

Instruction will include time in the classroom, Clarendon College’s new CDL simulator, and on-the-road in the college’s recently acquired semi-truck.

For more information, about the class contact Program Director Ken Carlile at 806-874-3571 or fill out the online contact form at ClarendonCollege.edu/CDL.
