About this Program

The Professional Truck Driver program has been training truck drivers for industry for over 30 years. Using modern equipment, the course offers instruction and training in forklifts, straight trucks, and tractor trailer combinations, including doubles. Most students log approximately 2,000 to 2,500 miles behind the wheel prior to graduation.

Alexandria Technical & Community College believes in preparing students for industry according to industry standards. Applicants of the Professional Truck Driver training program undergo a personal interview and must have a valid driver's license, have a driving record free of any serious moving violations within the past 12 months, pass a Department of Transportation physical examination, and pass drug and alcohol testing.
