A CDL Open House, held Thursday to attract students into Penn College’s Commercial Driver’s License program, was co-hosted at the Schneebeli Earth Science Center by Workforce Development & Continuing Education and the Center for Transportation Safety. CTS brought a simulated rig to the event so that potential students could experience driving a tractor-trailer; a skid steer was also on hand to let participants practice vehicle control. WDCE, which contracts with CTS to provide CDL Class A training at the college’s Energy Technology Education Center site along Route 15 near Allenwood, hopes to add Class B and CDL Refresher Safe Driving courses to its portfolio.
