This is not a new class, but it’s revamped with a new instructor that has moved in house, and it’s going to be something just huge and pretty impressive, I think,” said Brian Welsh, Student Services Coordinator at TCTC.”It’s a year long training. it’s so many hours, so much exposure, so much training that they’re not going to get just going to the state of Maine and taking the driver’s test,” said Vicki Kimball, the lead instructor of the truck driving program at TCTC.Students will learn the in’s and out’s of being a professional truck driver.By the end of the year, the students will plan an eight to nine hour road trip.
