About 80% of U.S. communities are dependent on trucking services to deliver medicine, food, raw materials, and other essentials. Nearly 1,200 truckers retired in America every week, that’s nearly 60,000 a year. Therefore, Covid-19 increased the demand of drivers as world wide shortages inclined.
“We are all about finding solutions this is a unique out of the box creative way to fulfill our community and grow our economy.”

In this accelerated program, students get the chance to learn the ins and outs to obtaining their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL). With experience inside and outside the classroom students are guaranteed to be successful in our program. Hodges University aims to provide opportunity to those seeking impact in their education. Hodges University will provide additional coursework for students that need it. Such as English courses for non-native speakers or management courses for those that want to go the next step.
One solution the university wanted to fulfill with this program were the gaps in the trucking industry.It’s a need that was at the forefront during the pandemic and made even worse locally after Hurricane Ian.
The timing of the program at Hodges could not have been better.
