Mohawk Valley Community College and Ancora Corporate Training have joined forces to provide a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training program on the Rome Campus, 1101 Floyd Ave., according to an announcement by college officials.
The program will begin on Monday, Sept. 13, with new classes starting each month, the announcement said, adding that Ancora Corporate Training provides hands-on, instructor-led, and online training across the United States.
The company also offers public and customized training for groups or individuals in-person or online.
Students in the program can get their CDL license in as little as four weeks, officials said, adding that Ancora balances classroom learning with on-the-road training, and students are taught defensive driving, maintenance, trip planning, equipment inspection, road safety and laws, and other skills for being a tractor trailer driver.
