WATERTOWN — A partnership between Jefferson Community College and The Arc Jefferson-St. Lawrence provided free Class B commercial driver’s license training to prepare public transit drivers in two weeks and helped to fill a workforce need in the north country.

JCC’s Zero to Theory Training for Public Transit Drivers was developed to train bus drivers and help them gain full-time employment with The Arc Jefferson–St. Lawrence.

The JCC program included Class B and passenger endorsement entry-level driver training (ELDT) and the Class B commercial learner’s permit with air brake and passenger endorsements.

After completing 65 hours of training with JCC, participants were ready to start the behind-the-wheel ELDT with trainers at The Arc.

Participants have 90 days to prepare for their road test and get their Class B CDL. With a Class B CDL, a driver may operate a commercial truck or large bus that weighs more than 26,000 pounds.

As an additional incentive, The Arc Jefferson-St. Lawrence is offering sign-on bonuses totaling $1,050 to participants who successfully complete all required training and onboard for employment.
