GREENSBORO, NC – Goodwill Industries of Central North Carolina, Inc. (Triad Goodwill) is partnering with TransTech, Inc., of Newton, NC to offer a 4-week long, commercial driver’s license (CDL) training program.
Hosted at Triad Goodwill’s Greensboro Career Center at 1235 South Eugene Street, Greensboro NC 27406, TransTech, Inc.’s 4-week, full-time training program prepares students for the commercial driver’s license exam. Students meet Monday – Friday each week. During the first week of the course, students will meet in a classroom setting, and in the following weeks students will move to the “yard” for skills training. The skills training portion includes 90 degree turns, offset, and straight line back driving. The course culminates with wheel time, which includes daytime driving and state-mandated night-time driving.
The TransTech CDL Training is a more condensed program compared to other training programs in the area, and also staffs both licensed instructors and examiners to conduct the training.
The program’s cost is all-inclusive- meaning that the $2,875 cost includes the DOT physical examination and drug screening, as well as the skills exam at the end of the program. TransTech has partnered with multiple agencies, including W.I.O.A., W.R.L.P. and Vocation Rehab programs to provide sponsorship opportunities to students who qualify. Students only need to pay for the driving permit, and license upon passing the exam.

“We are super excited to be partnered with the Goodwill in the Greensboro area,” said Landon Elks, Assistant Director of TransTech, Inc. “We believe it’s a win-win for both TransTech and Goodwill. There is an increasing rise in the need for individuals with a Class A license, both with and without experience, and we are happy to help meet that need with Goodwill’s help.”
TransTech’s team works one-on-one with students to assist with job placement opportunities upon completing the training. “We currently have 4 students in the class right now at Triad Goodwill, and 3 of those 4 students have already been offered employment” said Elks.
