Almost everything we use is moved across the country by truck and without truck drivers our country would be at a standstill. This type of training is critical to our nation as a whole. There is currently a driver shortage, providing opportunities for both men and women to work as professionally trained drivers for good pay and competitive benefits. Job placement is available locally as well as nation-wide. The Professional Truck Driving Training program at the UBATC provides the information necessary to help potential employees be safe, competent truck drivers.
