Academic CDL Program Expanded

Newark, Delaware, October 23, 2019

Driving Dynamics Inc. announced today, its entry-level commercial driver’s license (CDL-A) course offered through educational institutions has been added to the curriculum at the Anderson campus of Ivy Tech Community College in Indiana.

Through CTS Driving Academy, the academic training arm of Driving Dynamics’ commercial driver training business—Center for Transportation Safety (CTS), students are provided comprehensive classroom lessons and behind-the-wheel training taught by certified instructors who have more than 10 years of commercial transportation safe driving experience. In addition, Driving Dynamics invites recruiters to assist students during the employment process to support placement after graduation. Since 2014, the CTS Driving Academy has maintained a 100 percent passing and job placement rate.

By adopting the program, colleges develop strategic partnerships with local businesses in need of commercial drivers, acquire the value of an established motor carrier and access to increased revenue and funding opportunities.

“You have been great partners and we look forward to continue working with you to solve the state’s CDL driver shortage,” said Aaron Baute, Vice President at Ivy Tech Community College. “The engagement and support we have gotten from CTS with our employer focus groups, the Department of Workforce Development, and the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) has been substantial on your part. Bottom line is we could not do it without you.”

Ivy Tech Community College is the nation's largest singly accredited statewide community college system and through its partnership with Driving Dynamics, it has become the largest entry-level CDL training provider in the state of Indiana.

“Truck driving will continue to be a lucrative job market for college graduates,” said Driving Dynamics’ Chief Operating Officer, Tony Vinciguerra. “We’re thrilled to offer Ivy Tech Community College the opportunity to administer our proven CDL training and to continue the program’s expansion to help solve commercial driver shortages everywhere.”
