JCCC can prepare you for a lifelong career in the lucrative, growing trucking industry with training to earn your Class A commercial driver's license (CDL-A).

Skilled truck drivers are in high demand and are sought by national companies. And because JCCC's program standards exceed industry expectations, our graduates often find jobs with very competitive pay and benefits shortly after completing the program.

"It was very easy to find employment," said Scot H., a JCCC program graduate. "I like that so many companies came to class to seek us out. The instructors I had were very encouraging and gave me confidence to accomplish the program."

What sets the JCCC program apart?

Our flexible program options enable you to complete your training even if you're working full time. We offer 9-week classes that meet on nights and weekends, or we can customize training to prepare you faster.

Our qualified instructors all bring at least five years' actual over-the-road driving experience. They understand how to prepare you for your career. And our program is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, another indication of program quality noticed by employers.

"It is very difficult to find quality employees," said Ray Koenig, senior transportation manager for Dot Foods, the largest food service redistribution company in the United States. "All of the hires from the JCCC program have a strong work ethic, and there's a certain drive about them. It's an outstanding program with great facilities. From the administrative end to the instructors, everything is first-rate."

JCCC has dedicated training space and a driving range near Logistics Park Kansas City in nearby Edgerton, Kansas. Our one-to-two student-to-truck ratio means you get individualized hands-on CDL training.
