Meeting Industry Demand

Okanagan College joined forces seven years ago with Taylor Pro Training, a leader in truck driver training, to offer Class 1 Driver Training. This experiential, full-time program covers the broad range of hands-on skills necessary to find employment as a transport truck driver and can be completed in just six weeks. What’s more, the provincial government, realizing this looming shortage, has provided full funding for the program to eligible applicants through the Canada-British Columbia Job Fund. Of the 32 students who participated last year in the tuition-free program, 29 found employment in the trucking industry.
