Partnership With Advanced Truck School Continues In 2010

WNC Offers Spring Truck Driver Training Courses

WNC is helping students who are seeking new careers in truck driving, offering a series of non-credit truck driver training courses at the Carson City and Fallon campuses this spring. Courses are offered in cooperation with Advanced Truck School and prepare students for the DMV truck drive (CDL) test. Courses are six days a week for four weeks. Sessions begin February 1, March 1, April 5, May 3 and June 1.

Cost is $1,800 and includes 85 hours of classroom instruction plus 100 hours of hands-on operation of a vehicle.

"The purpose of the truck school is to bring truck driver training to Nevadans who might not otherwise have access to it," said Arni Ares, owner of Advanced Truck School and its primary instructor. 

The truck school's primary goal is the development of safe, knowledgeable, responsible and professional drivers for the trucking industry. 

WNC continues to work closely with local agencies that may be able to assist students, if eligible, with the cost of tuition, and also with northern Nevada trucking companies to help graduates find jobs within the industry.
