How Will I Pay for Training?

When compared to all types of education, CDL training has one of the highest rates of return! For a very affordable investment, new truck drivers can begin earning $40,000 to $50,000 in just their first year on the job!

Michigan Works Approved

You may qualify for a one-time government grant to help you pay for a portion or the entire tuition amount for training. You would not be required to pay back the grant. If you qualify, the approval process usually takes a few weeks to complete. Each county has a different processing time, and some Michigan counties may not have funding available. Give us a call so we can direct you to the proper program!
