Truck Driving Training

The Truck Driving School has moved into the Applied Sciences and Technology Department.

Training at ICC is provided through a partnership with Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, Hudson NC. CCC&TI started training drivers in 1990 with one truck and a few students. Today they have over 70 pieces of equipment and have graduated over 2,000 CDL drivers in the past 10 years. At present Isothermal will offer full-time day classes requiring 8.5 weeks to complete.

The truck driver training program provided by CCC&TI is certified by the Professional Truck Driving Institute (PTDI) www.ptdi.org located in Alexandra, VA.  PTDI is the first non-profit organization to develop uniform skills performance, curriculum and certification standards for the trucking industry and to award course certification to entry-level truck driver finishing programs.

The Federal Motor carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) supports the PTDI curriculum as representing the basis for adequate training of entry-level drivers.
