After approximately $1.5
million in renovations, Southeast Community College’s Professional Truck Driver
Training program is now operating at full speed on the Milford Campus after
being in Lincoln since its inception.
“Professional Truck Driving
Training will be a great addition to the Milford Campus,” said Ed Koster,
Milford Campus director. “We believe that many of our students who graduate
from our existing programs would also benefit from getting their CDL (Commercial
Driver’s License) while attending SCC.”
In addition to renovating the
Industry Training Center, improvements include a new parking garage for the
vehicles, new roof, new HVAC systems, classroom improvements, and a brand-new paved
concourse for the students to utilize.
biggest difference that we are looking forward to is the concrete backing
concourse,” said Mike Kuebler, program director. “The concourse in Lincoln is
gravel and can be very difficult to work with. The Milford Campus also puts us
closer to the diesel tech program so we can have repairs done by the students
renovations and touch-ups will be completed prior to students returning to the
campus for Fall Semester, which begins Aug. 24.
The eight-week Certificate program costs just
more than $1,000 and admits students in fall, spring and summer terms.
