FTA sets itself apart from other trucking schools in many ways. FTA is approved to offer not only training for a North Carolina CDL, but also for Virginia and South Carolina. Since many of our students are from other states, FTA also offers housing with many of the comforts of home, including Wi-Fi for those who wish to study a little more in the evenings with their personal laptops.
While in the classroom, you will use "clickers" to interactively answer questions on the classroom's computer screen. We've taken every step to make your CDL training as interactive and easy to understand as possible. We know that the more comfortable you are with the equipment and the more knowledgeable you are with the study materials, the more confident you will be when you get behind the wheel of your first big rig!
FTA is dedicated to offering not only the best CDL training in North Carolina, but also to getting you hired by a reputable trucking company, and to starting you off on the right foot in your new truck driving career. When you attend FTA, you will be presented with representatives from major trucking companies seeking qualified entry-level drivers who truly want a career in the truck driving industry.
Trucking companies send their representatives to FTA because they know that FTA has a long history in maintaining a high set of CDL training standards. As a matter of fact, more than 80% of FTA students have multiple job offers before their CDL training is complete. In addition, many of the trucking companies presented to you offer tuition reimbursement in the form of an additional monthly payment to you while you work for them.
