NTTS is a viable training option for active duty, transitioning military personnel, their spouses, and returning veterans with daily or weekend CDL training courses. If qualified, tuition for CDL training is covered through Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefits, New York State Veterans Tuition Award (NYSVTA), and Federal Tuition Assistance (FTA) programs. Additionally, several NTTS graduate employers offer VA-approved paid apprenticeship programs and tuition reimbursement if qualified.

Approved for Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefits

Our branch campuses located in Buffalo, NY, Liverpool, NY, and Phoenix, AZ, have Commercial Truck Driver training programs approved so eligible veterans can use the Veterans Administration (VA) funded Post-9/11 GI Bill® Benefits to pay for truck driver training in full if qualified.
