Chemeketa launches CDL licensing course

Chemeketa Community College’s new truck driving program will enable students to gain knowledge and skills needed to earn their commercial driver license (CDL) in four weeks.

The program will prepare students for taking the state exam as well as meet new state and federal requirements for certification, which will involve 160 hours of classroom and behind the wheel training. Graduates can expect to find a rewarding career with great starting salaries, job security, and options for local or interstate jobs.

Interested students must be 18 years old, have a valid Oregon driver’s license, and at least one year of driving experience. For detailed information on program requirements and FAQs, visit or contact Paul Davis at [email protected] or 503-584-7553.
