Talk It Up Thursday-CDL Training and Requirements
Public Works Departments place great importance on training and developing their employees. One crucial aspect of this training involves equipping operators and drivers with the necessary skills to obtain their CDL licenses. This session will provide valuable information on entry-level driver training for new CDL holders, available CDL training options, and the updated CDL requirements that will be enforced starting in 2023, including mandatory drug and alcohol testing. Our guest speakers for this event include Kerri Wilson, the Commercial Truck Driving Program Chair at SRTC, Stacy Johnson, the FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Clearinghouse Manager, and Danny McPeters from the GA Division of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.
