USA Truck (No. 68 on the CCJ Top 250) will pay the training fees for 15 qualified applicants who enroll in a five-week Commercial Driver’s License Training Program offered through a partnership between the University of Arkansas Global Campus, Northwest Technical Institute and Mid-America Truck Driving School.
Participants can apply for these scholarships through the USA Truck Career Launch Program. Scholarship recipients who complete the training program offered through the university will be given preference for job openings with USA Truck. Recent U.S. veterans are eligible for a $1,000 hiring bonus and may qualify for an upgraded pay package.
Scholarships cover the $4,250 enrollment fee for the program. The five-week program offers day or evening classes, with six starting dates each year.
The training program includes 200 hours of combined classroom and behind-the-wheel training. Each course is designed to provide the student with the necessary knowledge, skills and abilities to obtain a commercial driver’s license.
