Truck Driving - High Demand Occupation

Truck driving ranks in the Top 10 High Demand Occupations list in the nation, according to U.S. News and World Report. Currently, there are more job openings than there are drivers to fill them. In order to meet demand, tuition reimbursement is also an option for many over-the-road companies.

Remember, the course is five weeks in length and students receive job assistance upon graduation.

Call TSTC at 903-923-3403 or email to find out how to secure an entry-level job as a local or as an over-the-road driver with a Commercial Driver's License (CDL).
