Title IV Funding (Pell and Student Loans) are not available for this course!  Full tuition must be paid prior to start of class unless agency funded.

We do offer a Commercial Truck Driver Student Aid Program, see info below.

These courses are designed to prepare students to pass the State of Ohio Commercial Driver's License (CDL) test as well as succeed in the trucking industry as a high demand, professional truck driver.  Students must have a valid driver's license. Students must also be able to pass a Department of Transportation (DOT) physical, and a drug screen, which will be completed during the first week of the class and is included in your tuition.

Beginning February 7, 2023 all Mid-East CTC Adult Education Truck Driver Training classes will require a seat fee of $200.00 upon registration. This seat fee is non-refundable, but does apply to your overall tuition if you attend and complete class.

Agencies or employers who are funding an individual's training must contact our Financial Services office regarding payment options. Please call 740-455-3111.
