New session for NRCC’s professional truck driving course begins this month


Registration is open for New River Community College’s professional truck driving course. During the hands-on training, participants will learn truck driving skills and take the Virginia DMV’s Class A Commercial Driver’s test to obtain a CDL credential.

A new session will begin at the end of the month. It will be held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will run from April 29 through Aug. 20 (#5528).

New weekday sessions will begin this summer. One session will run from June 5 through July 18 (#5530) and another session will begin Aug. 1 and run until Sept. 12 (#5532).

Financial assistance is available to those who qualify through Virginia’s New Economy Workforce Credential Grant (WCG) program. More information about the WCG is available at
