Class B CDL Curriculum
NATS’ Class B CDL training prepares students to take and pass their CDL B exam upon graduating. The program begins in the classroom before moving out to the range and getting behind the wheel. The range portion of training is the majority of the program, so students can feel confident they are getting plenty of time behind the wheel.
Similar to the Class A CDL program, additional endorsements are offered as upgrades to your Class B CDL. Contact a NATS representative to learn about what endorsements are offered on campus.
