Friday, Oct. 19 8 a.m. - noon • KCC Room D123 LECT 9360.A13 • $79

Topics in this session will include: effective employee communication, small group presentations skills, managing a diverse workforce, employee safety and health and conflict management.

Truck Driver Training After training, you’ll be prepared for an entry-level position in the trucking industry. KCC’s Truck Driver Training program works with many trucking companies that will pre-hire students. The fact is, truck driving is one of the few occupations where students who complete training are almost certain to go to work immediately. Most students receive several job offers prior to completion of the program. Register at any time. Full-time programs start every month. Part-time programs start every eight to 10 weeks. Training is scheduled around holidays and interruptions caused by weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Program fee includes: • 120 hours of yard and road skills • 40 hours of classroom study • Illinois Secretary of State administered Class A road test

Topics include: • Department of Transportation rules and regulations • Log books • Map reading • Trip planning • Vehicle training

Enrollment options: • 4-week class—meets Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. • 8-week evening class—meets Monday through Friday, 6-10 p.m.
