There are many ways to pay for CDL truck driving school, including WIA grants, TAA, vocational rehabilitation, alternative financing, tuition reimbursement as well as tuition sharing or contract training programs available.
Since each form of funding has its own requirements, we recommend that you pre-apply with our CDL truck driving school or call us, so that we determine the grant that most closely matches your present circumstance.
You might be asking: what the difference is between "tuition reimbursement" and "paid CDL training"?
"Paid CDL Training" is when a company pays your tuition in part or in full.Please keep in mind that there is no such thing as FREE CDL Training. Trucks, Fuel, Trainers, etc. all cost money. Therefore, the training you receive will come with a price tag in some form or another. If a trucking company is paying for your Truck Driving tuition, you will be required to sign an employment contract for at least 1-2 years dinclepending on the company. If you do not adhere to the terms of the contract or if you quit or are discharged before the contract is scheduled to end, expect a bill in the mail for the remaining balance that you owe to that company for the CDL Training that they provided to you.
"CDL Tuition Reimbursement" is when you and a company each commit to working with each other, and in turn, that company pays you directly on a monthly basis until your tuition has been reimbursed in part or in full, as long as you continue to work for that company.The idea behind CDL Tuition Reimbursement is that one of the trucking companies that we help you get a job with will pay you back for as long as you work at their company because they appreciate your initiative in furthering your education by obtaining your CDL. You are not under any type of contract with that trucking company. You can work for that company as long as you wish and you are not subject to any length of time that you are required to work for them. Their Tuition Reimbursement Program is simply set up to pay back your tuition commitments, and different companies have different amounts paid to you in your pay check. So, we often invite trucking company representatives to our school so that you can ask each representative as many questions as you like, such as: tuition reimbursement, different types of jobs available like OTR (long haul) or regional, and what parts of the country you can expect to see.
If financing the course through one of our 3rd party lenders isn't for you, we of course take cash, check, or credit cards. We understand that every person's financial situation is different, but no matter what financial vehicle you are using, truck driving tuition reimbursement is available (excludes government funded grants).
