SCC's truck driving training course relocates to Milford
After approximately $1.5 million in renovations, Southeast Community College’s Professional Truck Driver Training program is now operating at full speed on the Milford Campus after being in Lincoln since its inception.
“Professional Truck Driving Training will be a great addition to the Milford Campus,” said Ed Koster, Milford Campus director. “We believe that many of our students who graduate from our existing programs would also benefit from getting their CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) while attending SCC.”
In addition to renovating the Industry Training Center, improvements include a new parking garage for the vehicles, new roof, new HVAC systems, classroom improvements, and a brand-new paved concourse for the students to utilize.
“The biggest difference that we are looking forward to is the concrete backing concourse,” said Mike Kuebler, program director. “The concourse in Lincoln is gravel and can be very difficult to work with. The Milford Campus also puts us closer to the diesel tech program so we can have repairs done by the students there.”
Final renovations and touch-ups will be completed prior to students returning to the campus for Fall Semester, which begins Aug. 24.
The eight-week Certificate program costs just more than $1,000 and admits students in fall, spring and summer terms.
