CCBC to offer new Commercial Driver’s License training

Nov 15, 2020

CCBC, in conjunction with the CCBC Foundation, is proud to announce the opening of a new Transportation Training Center at Tradepoint Atlantic. As part of this new center, CCBC will offer Commercial Driver’s License training with an expansive new driving range, a welcome addition to the college’s Transportation, Distribution and Logistics Institute.

With Baltimore County being home to the third highest number of Transportation, Distribution and Logistic employers in Maryland, CCBC is positioned to create a pipeline of workers trained to meet the county’s in-demand jobs.

“As we continue our economic recovery, Baltimore County will continue investing in our people, creating stronger pathways to opportunity. Combining CCBC’s innovative approach to workforce development and Tradepoint Atlantic’s role as regional economic growth engine is a perfect fit,” said Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski. “Through this exciting public-private partnership, we will build a steady pipeline to one of the nation’s fastest growing job sectors and expand Baltimore County’s efforts to support the economy of the future.”

CCBC begins CDL training at Tradepoint Atlantic in early December. Students have the opportunity to earn a Commercial Driver’s Class-A License in a 280-hour training program that will run 8-20 weeks with day, evening and weekend options. A combination of in-class and behind-the-wheel instruction will occur on-site. Upon completion, students are prepared to take the Maryland Commercial Driver’s License exam. 


“Having our Transportation Training Center located at Tradepoint Atlantic provides us unparalleled access to land, water and rail, crucial for offering education and training associated with the planning, management and movement of people and goods,” said CCBC President Sandra Kurtinitis. “We are pleased that this partnership has finally come to fruition. It gives CCBC the opportunity to expand its ability to offer workforce training in areas that not only provide well-paying jobs, but establish solid careers.”
