Montana Tech Offering Summer CDL Course

Montana Tech will hold a summer Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) course at it’s Highlands campus. The six-week session will begin on July 11, 2022. The program teaches students basic truck driving skills introducing them to the field of heavy-duty trucking. The program will emphasize safety equipment knowledge and State of Montana and Federal Department of Transportation (DOT) rules and regulations. Using a comprehensive curriculum developed by the Professional Truck Driving Institute, students will receive classroom and driving instruction that meets DOT and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Entry-Level Driving Training regulation standards that address skills, theory/knowledge, tasks, and the duties required of entry-level commercial vehicle drivers. The program meets the needs of students with no prior knowledge or experience in truck driving interested in getting a Class-A CDL License.
The program has been designed and follows the new regulations and is listed in the FMCSA training provider registry.

The registration/payment and testing deadlines are Tuesday, July 5, 2022. Highlands College will set up pre-screening requirements at the time of registration. Students must submit results to Highlands College before the final registration deadline.
