Our truck driver or forklift/hi-lo training program course is free and is available to Detroit residents. Participants receive a stipend.
For the first four weeks of the program, students receive work-readiness training in computer, reading, math, job search, and soft skills. This work-readiness will be delivered electronically through Google Classroom starting on Monday, May 4. Virtual classes will meet daily from 8:30AM to 1PM, with check-ins and assignments. For students without internet access, assignments will be mailed to them.
Once the State of Michigan permits, students will then receive “hands-on” training either to earn a Commercial Driver’s License “A” (CDLA) or a forklift/hi-lo certification.
You must have a valid driver’s license to take the program. You must submit to a background check and also pass a DOT Physical/Drug Test once the hands-on training begins. Truck driving and forklift/hi-lo are felony-friendly occupations, but there are some restrictions.
Transportation assistance, job search assistance and other supports are available to participants. Graduates of the truck driving course have the opportunity to be placed with a major national trucking company and get further on-the-job training.
Truck drivers and forklift/hi-lo operators are in high demand and earn a good living!
