Paris (Texas) Junior College is expanding its driver training program to include its Sulphur Springs campus. The program is divided into two sections, each $2,300 for 100 hours.

The first course, Professional Truck Driving I, provides an orientation to the trucking industry. Students learn about the basic operation of trucks, vehicle safety and pre-trip inspections. Instruction is also provided on vehicle maintenance, accident prevention and procedures, and more. Students in this course receive general hands-on trucking skills development.

In Professional Truck Driving II students receive instruction on basic and advanced skills and safe operating practices. They learn basic shifting, backing skills, and receive general hands-on trucking experience.

The PJC-Sulphur Springs trucking program began in January. PJC already has established trucking programs at its other two campuses in Paris and Greenville.
