No Cost CDL Training Program for Recently Separated US Military Veterans

The commercial trucking industry is in need of skilled drivers. The industry currently reports a shortage of as many as 200,000 qualified professionals. EL Hollingsworth believes our nationís heroes are ideally qualified for the rigors and responsibility that come with being a professional driver and only lack the job-specific training and certification required to fill these vital roles. With the primary goal being the development of a well-trained driver fleet, we have turned our considerable resources toward providing certification training and a guaranteed job upon successful completion of the program.

EL Hollingsworth recognizes and respects the vital job our nationís military plays in protecting our freedom. We also know that transitioning from active duty military service to the civilian sector can be daunting. Translating important skills learned while on active duty to a civilian job is challenging for veterans and employers alike. As such, we have initiated a program that helps take the discipline, loyalty, structure and hard work that veterans learn as early in their military careers as boot camp and relate that to the very challenging, rewarding job of commercial motor vehicle operator.
