Fort Drum is the location for both full and part-time Class A CDL training courses designed for active-duty soldiers or eligible veterans who wish to develop civilian tractor-trailer experience. This training provides fundamental CDL-A permit preparation with HAZMAT endorsement, DOT rules and regulations, preparation in logbooks, backing maneuvers, pre-trip inspection, and driving on a 10-speed manual transmission. Therefore, soldiers who have successfully completed the training are prepared to safely drive a commercial vehicle and take the CDL road test.
The full-time course is available Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM. In addition, the part-time course meets two evenings and one weekend day weekly for 13 weeks and is taught on-site at Fort Drum. Eligible active-duty soldiers and veterans may use Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefits, if qualified.
NTTS has contracted with the Department of Defense (DOD) with a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to train at Fort Drum, NY.
Graduates of this program have been provided job placement assistance with local, regional, and over-the-road driving positions with major tractor-trailer companies. Some of these carriers have positions throughout the United States and will be glad to assist the transitioning soldier to find employment in any state.
