MCC adds evening, weekend CDL-Class A Truck Driving course

OMAHA, Neb. — To greater meet the needs of the student body, Metropolitan Community College will add a nine-week CDL-Class A Truck Driving course at the Applied Technology Center location, 10407 State St. The class will run 5–10 p.m. weekdays and 8 a.m.–4 p.m. on Saturdays beginning this spring quarter and beginning again in the summer quarter.
“The new course is ideal for working adults wanting to make a career change,” said Darryl Partner, CDL-Class A Truck Driving instructor. “Transportation and logistics is a growing industry and the job market in the field is also expected to grow.”
The new course is in addition to MCC’s existing CDL-Class A Truck Driving program, a program that has traditionally operated during the day on weekdays. The courses in the program cover the basics in CDL-Class A License training like safe driving techniques, vehicle inspection as well as a thorough understanding of the capabilities of the vehicle. Soft skills like employer-employee relations, customer relations and map reading are also taught.
