Many adults want to go back to school to get their CDL license and start a new career in the trucking industry. But, the idea of going back to school can be rather intimidating and may raise a lot of unanswered questions. Some may question their ability to afford career training, while others may wonder if they are at the right point in their lives to go back to school in the first place.
Many adults will have a lot of unanswered questions about going back to school, you’re not alone. Today we take a look at what going back to CDL school might mean for an adult!
How am I supposed to afford the training?
There are a variety of ways that you can get assistance in paying for CDL school. From grants to financial aid and even scholarships, there is a variety of ways to help adults pay for career training. The financial aid staff at DDA will help you fill out your FAFSA forms to see if you qualify for loans or aid to help you be able to afford to start your CDL training.
If I work full time, can I still take my CDL training courses at Diesel Driving Academy?
Yes, of course! For those who have full-time day jobs, families, and other responsibilities to attend to we offer night time classes as well. To earn your CDL in the evening program, class will be completed in 30 weeks (the daytime program is 20 weeks). You will receive the same great training as the participants of our day-time class, just on a different schedule.
What if I never really had a career before?
Some of our students are moving from one career path to a new one as a truck driver. But, a lot of our students are just getting started in a career for the first time. Whether you are looking for your first career, are transitioning out of military service, or want to shift gears completely, we got you covered! We do require that our students are a minimum of 21 years old (at graduation) however, there is never an age limit on learning, knowledge, and getting yourself ready to start a great new career.
