Looking to start a career in one of the fastest growing occupations? Kirkwood’s Class A Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program is designed for adults who would like to train for a high-demand career in a short-term time frame.  Tuition includes online entry-level driver theory training, entry-level driver behind the wheel training, along with testing with a third party Iowa DOT certified examiner.  All behind the wheel training and testing will occur at Hawkeye Community College’s Regional Transportation Center (6433 Hammond Ave, Waterloo IA).  This class will focus on developing safe driving skills including backing, turning, and driving on rural and suburban roads. You will receive hands-on training using full-size semi-tractor/trailers and virtual driving simulators with 10 speed and automatic options available. 
Daily training will occur with scheduling available to meet your needs.  Available training times include 8AM-12PM, 1PM – 5PM, or 5PM-9PM.  You will have up to 6 weeks to become proficient in every skill before testing. Once confident with your skills, the following DOT tests will take place: DOT vehicle Inspection, skills, driving.  Graduates can find employment in a variety of areas including, but not limited to, a truck driver, spotter, shag driver, and many more. Tuition assistance may fund up to 100 percent of your registration cost for this program. Fill out our funding referral form at www.kirkwood.edu/cefunding.
