WATERTOWN — This fall, in collaboration with the North Country Workforce Development Institute and Lewis County, Jefferson Community College partnered with the National Tractor Trailer School to offer free hands-on training to prepare five students to take the nationally recognized commercial driver’s license Class A exam.

The three-part exam includes a knowledge test, endorsement knowledge test and a driving skills test. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for tractor-trailer truck drivers is expected to grow more than 6% through the year 2030 due to recovery from the COVID-19 recession and the elevated need for truck drivers as households and businesses increase their spending online.
