POCAHONTAS, Ark. (KAIT) – Black River Technical College (BRTC) is offering a new Commercial Driver’s License training program, where students can get a Class A CDL license within a month.
The program kicked off June 1.
The class features 10-hour days, and only 4 people are accepted into each class.
The first week consists of preparing for the CDL Permit Test, then the rest of the class focuses on driving.
The goal is to get a Class A CDL License, which is required to operate vehicles like semis.
Director of Corporate and Community Education Patti Blaxton says the program is beneficial for not only businesses but northeast Arkansas as well.
“It’s going to be a really good opportunity for Northeast Arkansas residents to have the opportunity to have a new, rewarding career,” Blaxton said.
