Dedication. Compassion. Inspiration.
Given today's competitive environment, gaining an education has never been more important. In fact, it's critical. At DCI, we realize the decision of where to get an education is one of the most important you'll ever make, and we take this responsibility very seriously. The DCI experience is centered on providing an environment that enables you to thrive in the pursuit of your personal and career goals.
So what does this mean to you? This means that from your initial contact, you'll have the entire Dawn team helping you every step of the way! Admissions and Financial Aid personnel will walk you through the enrollment process and can help you understand what educational funding may be available to students who qualify. You'll be taught by dedicated, qualified instructors who have actually worked in the field – so you benefit from their real-world knowledge. You'll gain hands-on experience in facilities that are industry-modeled, which means you'll be working on the same equipment you'll find on your first day on the job. But we know success isn't gained simply through time in the classroom and labs. At DCI you'll build relationships with your instructors and your Career Services representative, who will assist you with career development, interviewing skills and job placement.
At DCI, we understand you have work and family commitments. That's why we offer flexible class schedules in the morning, evening and even online and blended campus/online programs to fit your busy lifestyle.
Heavy truck and tractor-trailer drivers with a commercial driver's license (CDL) transport goods from one location to another. Driver schedules can vary widely depending on the type of route they travel. Drivers can travel local routes that can be completed within a day, or they can be assigned to longer trips that span several states and require several days on the road. Commercial drivers are required to adhere to state and federal safety regulations, and perform a variety of functions aside from driving. Drivers are responsible for securing cargo for transport, inspecting their vehicles before and after a trip, identifying and reporting mechanical problems, and maintaining a log of their hours.
