SNYDER— Western Texas College on the Square is pleased to announce that it will begin offering Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training beginning October 23.

“We are thrilled that we can offer this training to individual and businesses in this community and the surrounding area,” said Donna Cutler, WTC Director of Workforce Development.

Cutler noted that the program will teach potential drivers the skills and knowledge required to safely operate commercial motor vehicles in the state of Texas.

Classes for a CDL with Western Texas College on the Square will take only eight weeks and include classroom instruction and on-the-road, real-time practice driving.

In addition, businesses and persons interested in the program may qualify for grants to help cover costs.

“Western Texas College saw a need in our local job market. Part of our responsibility to the community include assessing job needs and establishing programs to fill those needs,” Cutler added.

An informational meeting for people interested in the program will be held on Wednesday, October 11 from 5 to 8 p.m. at College on the Square. The event is come-and-go, and refreshments will be served.

College on the Square will also host a lunch for businesses interested in having their employees train for a CDL.
