The Basic section of the Electrical Lineworker Academy offers a 10-week commercial driver's license program that includes the new Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) and Entry-Level Driver Training (ELDT) material for theory, behind the wheel range instruction, and behind the wheel road instruction. At the completion of training each student is tested for their CDL license in the state they live in.
This course is offered four times a year. There are two fall classes--the first starts in July and the second in October. The spring class begins in January and the summer class begins in April.
