The North Idaho College Workforce Training Center will begin offering in January a commercial driver’s license course that will prepare people for entry-level jobs as truck drivers in less than six weeks.

Truck driving jobs are in high demand, a news release from the workforce training center said. A free information session will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Tuesday at the center in Post Falls. Call (208) 769-3333 for more information.

The class will be offered from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, Jan. 24 to March 2. It includes 160 hours of training through the Professional Truck Driver Institute’s required curriculum. Those who finish qualify to obtain a class A commercial driver’s license.

Applicants must be 18 or older with a valid driver’s license and a good driving record.
