How to Join the Trucking Industry in Florida

With so many trucking companies based out of Florida, it's clear that trucking and diesel education are both very important in this state. Program lengths vary depending on which school you attend and whether you decide to study diesel technology or trucking. Bradford Union Technical Center offers a diesel technology program that includes 1800 hours of classroom work and lab work. At 18 hours per week, you can plan on graduating in about two years.

Truck driving programs are generally much shorter than diesel technology programs. CDI Truck Driving School offers a Class A training course that can be completed in three to four weeks! Of course, it is a fairly intensive program; students must take classes Monday through Friday. Driving hours are completed during the evening and on Saturday. This allows you to get started in your career as quickly as possible.
