A large population usually means more prosperous economy and more opportunities: this certainly makes the state of New York one of the best places to start and develop a truck driver career.
Whether you want to get a truck driver’s license or a diesel technology certificate, there are many advantages of choosing New York.
With as many as 36 schools, competition is certainly fierce; nevertheless, the prices are still high, indicating quality and demand.
To prove this, it is enough to mention that tuition is $16,247 on average, and the average scholarship amount of $5,189 may be enough to cover only a part of this cost.
Still, high quality of education may be worth the investment.
If you seek a scholarship, Teamster International Scholarship may be a good place to inquire.
It is a union based scholarship specifically meant for students of technical skills.
A Choice among Many: Presenting New York Trucking Schools
When deciding which school to pick, the schedule is often a factor that has the last word.
In practical occupations, such as truck driving and diesel technology, this is less of an issue, since the duration is usually short.
FYI: National Tractor Trailer School offer as many as 4 choices:
- a comprehensive course, with a 602-hour duration
- a shorter program (320 hours) to earn a Class A truck driving license
- an even shorter, 178.5-hour basic program
- and, the shortest and least demanding, class B training program lasting only 90 hours
Diesel technology programs are also very diverse and flexible. At New York Automotive and Diesel Institute, there are two options:
- a Certified Truck and Diesel Technician course (lasting 1 year),
- a Master Truck and Diesel technician degree (obtainable after 2 years)
