Avocational & Non Accredited Courses

A-Vocational Course(s) Disclosure:
A-Vocational Courses offered at CDT are not within the school's scope of Accredited programs. (ie: Minimum Training IV, Basic Training III, Basic Training IIIA, Intermediate Training II and Advanced Training I). These courses merely offer a secondary objective to obtain a CDL license with no school certificate or job placement assistance.

Learning avocations related to commercial driving or heavy machinery operation is beneficial in many ways. For those planning to get a bus, tractor trailer, or truck driver’s license and enter the trucking industry, avocational courses are the right programs to take to learn the basics of the business. These classes can help prepare participants for the road test and obtain a license.

For those who already have a regular work, taking up non-accredited courses is a great way to acquire new practical skills, which may prove useful in the future. It is always good to have an additional skill set just in case one needs another stream of income.

Although these courses are not given as much weight as accredited programs, there is no denying that having an avocation can boost one’s market value. It serves as a sound investment; the cost of undergoing an avocational program is nothing compared to invaluable base knowledge and practical experience one can find useful for a lifetime.

At CDT, we are proud to help anyone wanting to take an avocational course in commercial driving and heavy equipment operation. We offer a broad range of quality avocational courses designed to provide useful lessons and training in different fields of the trucking industry.
