Commercial Driver License (CDL)
This is an entry-level tractor-trailer driver course. The primary goal of the program is to train the student driver to obtain a Commercial Driver license. Supervised training is used as a reliable way of teaching the special skills required to safely and legally operate various types of tractor -trailer combinations (van trailer, tanker, doubles, and triples). The curriculum incorporates general theories of tractor-trailer operation including proper maintenance, pre-trip inspections, daily log requirements, professional tractor-trailer maneuvers (basic skills) and field trips (driving the rig) throughout the Four Corners area. Graduates are employable as professional over-the-road drivers, drivers for local companies, or establish their own trucking company. The CDL is a one-semester technical certificate.

Heavy Equipment Operator

The students will receive classroom instruction and gain hands-on experience. A construction equipment operator drives and controls construction equipment, such as forklifts, backhoes, front end loaders, excavators, motor graders, and dozers.
