Students obtain their CDL during their time in the Lineworker program.  BSC has two truck simulators that students use for 16 hours in order to learn how to drive a semi truck.  These simulators utilize multiple screens and a moving platform to provide students with a safe, controlled environment in which to practice.  The simulators create real-world driving scenarios in cities, suburban areas, and rural roads in a variety of weather conditions.  They can also replicate hazards such as a flat tire or roadway debris.

Once students complete training on the simulator, they practice with a driver using a semi truck with a 52’ flatbed trailer.  Students gain another 16 hours of training before testing for their CDL with the state department of transportation.
