Ivy Tech to offer CDL training program

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - Ivy Tech Corporate College will now offer Commercial Driver's License training for truck driving through a partnership with Lake Cumberland CDL Training School.

It's a four-week class, Monday through Thursday, for 10 hours a day, that will be held at Ivy Tech's main campus in Evansville.

Chancellor Jonathan Weinzapfel said the college has been working with area employers and is excited to offer this program.

"This is a huge need in our community. It pays great wages, almost $20 an hour on average, so it's a great opportunity for a lot of people in Southwestern Indiana. Especially, it's a position that is in high demand," said Weinzapfel.

Ivy Tech says the cost of the class is $4,000 which includes the CDL permit, license testing, the physical, drug testing, and more.

The college will be having sessions for potential students at 10 a.m. on July 27 and August 4
