Truck drivers can partner with the Ohio Department of Higher Education and Terra State Community College to obtain their CDL license through the the Commercial Truck Driver Student Aid Program.
Terra State partners with Trainco Truck Driving Schools to provide truck driving training on the college’s campus. CDL training can be completed in three weeks and students will earn six-and-a-half college credits at Terra State.
The Commercial Truck Driver Student Aid Program is a scholarship grant to promote and encourage job growth in commercial driver positions through education training in Ohio.
Participating students will receive a scholarship for half of the tuition costs, and the balance will be in the form of a financial aid loan. Upon completing the program, if the student enters the workforce immediately and agrees to reside, as well as be employed, in Ohio for a minimum of one year, the financial aid loan will be forgiven, making it a full-tuition scholarship.
Students with questions about the Commercial Truck Driver Student Aid Program can contact The Kern Center by calling 419.559.2464 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
