Is the Road Calling You? Have you ever wanted to begin a career in transportation but don't have a Class A or B driver's permit?
HIRED, a Twin Cities non-profit in workforce development and career counseling, is offering a FREE five-week training program for people looking for careers in the transportation industry. (This is preparatory classroom training that does not involve any actual driving.) Training will cover material relevant for a Class A or B permit, and the taking of the CDL permit test and up...to six endorsement exams (school bus, passenger vehicles, tanker, air brakes, combination vehicles, hazardous materials) to ensure that participants are well-equipped to enter the job market after graduation. There will also be sessions in career development, job search methods, and networking, through HIRED's C2SI program. Students will also take the National Retail Federation Customer Service exam during the program. Those who complete the training will be highly competitive applicants with nationally recognized certifications, strong connections with Twin Cities employers, and access to HIRED's employment counseling services. Upon passing the CDL test, graduates will have a Class A or B permit, which will allow them to begin their driving careers. Customer Service skills will make graduates especially well-qualified for positions that involve driving people, such as school buses, public transit, or delivery services.
Application deadline is September 27. Apply now--spots in this training will fill up soon!
