CTL Distribution Inc, Mulberry FL, has recently formed a partnership with C-1 Truck Driver Training to begin a training program for student drivers wanting to pursue their Class A commercial driver licenses (CDL) and employment with CTL.
The three-week program will allow CTL to offer career-driving opportunities to those wanting to join the transportation industry, but do not have their Class A CDL. CTL will sponsor the student driver and pay for their training with a commitment from the student to drive safely with CTL for one year.
CTL will focus on utilizing two C-1 training locations in Little Rock AR and East St Louis IL. Students will only be responsible for the licensing costs. CTL will pay for the training and, depending on student’s residence location, lodging may be provided.
CTL will qualify all student applicants for employment with CTL prior to offering training. Once pre-qualified, the student will be offered training under a promissory note to stay employed with CTL for one year.
CTL also is changing its tuition reimbursement policy to help benefit driver graduates as they start their careers by reimbursing tuition to qualified CTL drivers on a monthly basis instead of paying the drivers quarterly.
To be eligible for the program, recent school grads must come to CTL within 90 days of their graduation date, and CTL must be either their first or second place of employment after graduation.
