TRAINING & TESTING

At Career Tech, you will learn many life skills that will make the difference between a job and a career, the difference between an employee and a professional, the difference between loving your work and hating your job, the difference between going through the motions of life running on a hamster wheel, and discovering that there is a purpose for your life.

Just think about it for a moment.

Does Your Current Job Offer Job Security?
How many truck drivers’ jobs can be replaced by computers or robots to haul freight over the open roads in an eighteen wheeler? The answer is ZERO!

Career Tech is building it’s reputation as a leader in training qualified, professional drivers. Our goal is for our graduates to be among the most sought after entry level drivers in the industry.
