53-Foot Semi-Trailer for SCI's New CDL Program

We wanted to provide a program which allows students to continue to earn a living while gaining the skills needed for a career change.

Corpus Christi is getting ready to hit the road as Southern Careers Institute (SCI) is launching a new Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator program (CMVO) this summer.

The CMVO program provides engaging classroom content, interactive online learning as well as over-the-road driving experiences. Designed as a self-paced program, students are provided a unique freedom to schedule class time and driving training as their schedule allows.

“We wanted to provide a program which allows students to continue to earn a living while gaining the skills needed for a career change,” stated Matthew Hawes, Chief Operations Officer of Southern Careers Institute. “Students who are determined may complete the course in as little as 4 weeks.”

Throughout the course, students gain complete understanding of rules, regulations and safety measures required of intrastate and interstate driving, plus they become proficient drivers by practicing basic and advanced maneuvers with a standard tractor and 53-foot trailer.

“The CMVO truck driving program is adding more options for job training in the Corpus Christi community,” said Jacob Mayhew, CEO of Southern Careers Institute. “SCI’s focus is engineering programs that meet employers’ needs, and we believe this new program will allow students to gain the knowledge necessary to take the Commercial Driver’s License Class A exam as well as be job ready.”

Passing the CDL Class A exam qualifies drivers to become a professional truck driver and allows them to operate commercial vehicles for both intrastate and interstate transportation.

SCI’s Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator program is enrolling now for classes beginning July 11, 2016.

Members of the media, and anyone interested in learning more about this new program, are welcome to attend the Commercial Motor Vehicle Operator Open House Reception and Orientation on Wednesday, July 20, 2016 from 4:30pm – 6:30pm at SCI’s Corpus Christi campus. RSVP:
