Community Colleges / Technical Colleges / Private Driving Schools

Community College
When we start high school programs we need a local Private or Public Driving School to come beside the program and partner with the high school to become the feeding school for students. Do you have a relationship with a local high school that might be interested in starting a Next Gen in Trucking Program?

We are trying to start high school trucking programs across the country. We also have Technical Colleges that are working on starting Next Gen programs for dual enrollment credit at their local High School. They are helping to facilitate the teaching of the program in high school and upon high school graduation the students will attend the technical college to obtain their CDL.
