Long Beach City College (LBCC), in cooperation with the State of California and the Harbor Trucking Association (HTA) and its employer membership, has developed a professional training program that will educate, certify and license students for employment as a short-haul Class A Commercial Truck Drivers with clearance to operate within our local port complexes. The training includes hazardous freight endorsement and CSA2010 safety review.
This 14-week program prepares students for a career as port containerized freight haulers and includes assisting graduates with placement within our HTA partner network of local drayage companies. Interested applicants are responsible for providing eligibility documentation that may require a processing fee, plus a DMV testing and licensing fee.
This program’s seven instructional modules include:
1. Introduction to Commercial Driving
2. Owner/Operator Entrepreneurship
3. Port Terminal Access & Procedures
4. Clean Truck Operator Maintenance
5. Hazardous Materials Certification
6. Commercial Motor Vehicle Safety
7. Commercial Driver Training & Licensing
