PROFESSIONAL TRUCK DRIVING
NIT offers a wide variety of Professional Truck Driving Training Programs in Alaska, and all programs are designed to meet the needs of students and employers. All of our truck driving programs are centered around a hands-on learning approach. We believe it is important to give each student real-world training for Class A or Class B CDL licenses, to better prepare them for the truck driving industry.
Students practice their truck driving skills on school grounds to insure that each student thoroughly understands the training material and to build confidence in their truck driving abilities. Emphasis is placed on safety, on a thorough understanding of Federal Motor Carrier Safety Rules and Regulations in the operation of heavy-duty tractor/trailer equipment, and on driving techniques necessary in developing skill levels required to pass the State of Alaska Department of Motor Vehicles Commercial Driver’s License road examination.
