Chattahoochee Technical College announced that it will begin offering a 40-hour refresher course for those who have a Commercial Driver’s License, but need to prepare to re-enter the workforce.

Offered in June and again in July, the refresher course will be taught on the North Metro Campus in Acworth. The fee is $799 and includes materials needed for the classroom and road exercises. Students will have five days of intensive instruction inside and outside the classroom from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The number of heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers is expected to grow 13 percent by 2018. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics more than 3.2 million Americans worked as truck drivers in 2011. Truck drivers and driver/sales workers comprise one of the largest occupations, holding 3.2 million jobs.

For more information about the new refresher course, call Economic Development Coordinator Raushanah Butler at (770) 529-2369 or email at rbutler@chattahoocheetech.edu.
