Victoria College's Workforce and Continuing Education Department will begin a commercial truck driving course Feb. 17.
The course will meet from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and will run about seven weeks.
"Truck drivers are still in high demand right now," said Sherri Pall, director of VC's Workforce and Continuing Education Department. "Due to the oil and gas activity in the Eagle Ford Shale region, we continue to see a shortage of CDL drivers across many industries."
The Truck Driving Program at VC provides training for entry-level employment, and students who complete the training can obtain a commercial truck driver's license.
