Truck driver school, with 500 jobs, planned

Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS – An Indianapolis trucking company plans to create about 500 jobs over the next 10 years at a new driver-training school it intends to build with the help of up to $2.95 million in state tax credits.

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard and Indiana Gov. Mike Pence announced the tax credits and company’s plans at a news conference last week.

Along with the tax credits, the Indiana Economic Development Corp. has offered Celadon Group up to $200,000 in training grants.

The company plans to build a 61,000-square-foot, $5.7 million facility in Indianapolis with dorm rooms, a cafeteria, a workout room, basketball and racquetball court and a driver-training road course. Plans call for the school to be finished by fall and offer three to five weeks of training in the classroom and on the road.

Celadon said there will be jobs for drivers, trainers and administrative personnel.

Werner Stops By MTC Truck Driving School in Hazelwood to Hire Veterans

Werner Enterprises will be at the Midwest Training Center Truck School Friday. The goal is to hire U.S. veterans through a program called Operation Freedom.

Veterans looking for work have an opportunity for on-the-spot- interviews Friday in the City of Hazelwood.

Werner Enterprises is sending U.S. Army veteran driver David Conkling to Midwestern Training Center (MTC) Truck Driving School in the company’s Operation Freedom truck, for a driver recruitment event focused on U.S. military veterans. The event is also called Operation Freedom, and it’s a military apprenticeship program.

MTC is located at 11842 Missouri Bottom Road. The event is Friday from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

According to the company, Werner developed Operation Freedom in conjunction with the White House veteran campaign. The Company has pledged to hire a minimum of 1,000 veterans in 2013 and more than 5,000 veterans in the next five years.

Truck driver test may be waived for some veterans

Obtaining an Oregon commercial driver’s license will be a little easier for some veterans with military driving experience.

Military veterans whose primary duty involved the operation of a commercial motor vehicle may be eligible to acquire an Oregon CDL without passing the driving skills test. Applicants still will be required to take the CDL knowledge test.

Nearly all states have adopted the CDL drive-test waiver under a Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administrative rule change.

The federal rule change is intended to assist military veterans who seek to become civilian commercial truck drivers.

Veterans who think they may qualify for the CDL skills test waiver may find eligibility requirements and an application at OregonDMV.com.

They also may download the Oregon Commercial Driver Manual to study for the knowledge test.
