|Commercial Truck Driving offers short-term courses that provide students the potential for immediate employment in a living wage job upon successful completion. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires specialized training in the areas of driver qualification, hours of service, driver wellness, and whistleblower protection for entry-level drivers who are subject to the commercial drivers license requirements (49 CFR Part 380). The Commercial Truck Driving program provides the mandatory training for the Washington State Commercial Truck Driving License requirements for both new and renewing drivers. Students learn to maneuver large vehicles on crowded streets and in highway traffic, as well as learn to inspect trucks and freight for compliance with regulations. The Commercial Truck Driving curriculum is reviewed by an advisory board composed of local and regional industry members|
WWCC offers a Truck Driver Training Certificate and a Advanced Truck Driver Training Certificate.
In addition to receiving a certificate, Flagger training is also offered, which aids in receiving a Hazmat endorsement. If planning to work in a city, county, state department of transportation, or federal job, most of them require flagger and first aid training.
The Commercial Truck Driving program also offers a passenger and school bus endorsement.
