Clarendon College is launching a new Commercial Driver’s License certification program this fall.
The 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.
“We am very pleased to offer this program,” Dr. Robert Riza, Clarendon College President said. “I feel it is a program our community deserves and needs, and it fills a void for employment that is missing from our service area.”
Instruction will include time in the classroom, the College’s new CDL simulator, and on-the-road in the college’s recently acquired semi-truck.
Classes are set to begin August 29 at the College’s Downtown Educational Center in Clarendon, Texas, and will be held Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.
