Truck Driving - Entry Level CDL Training

Garden City Community College and Seward County Community College have formed a partnership to offer a CDL-Truck Driving program right here in Garden City. The class is held on the GCCC campus and students will receive training from a Seward County Community College instructor earning college credit from SCCC.

The CDL/Truck Driving program at Seward County Community College trains students in the necessary skills to enter the industry. Students learn vehicle equipment control, set up and inspections, basic maneuvering and handling, over the road records management, and preventive maintenance. With opportunities for both men and women to become truck drivers, the field is one of the fastest job markets in the country. Students who successfully graduate do so with a full CDL Class A License.
