Members of the Chattahoochee Technical College Paulding County Engagement Team participated in the Paulding County “Touch a Truck Day” on Saturday, April 27, in which children enjoyed taking a close look at one of Chattahoochee Tech’s commercial trucks.
The Touch a Truck Day event, which was held at Veterans Park in Dallas, featured a variety of vehicles in addition to the Chattahoochee Tech commercial truck, including police cars, a fire truck, ambulance and Department of Transportation trucks. This event was a great opportunity for kids and “kids at heart” to talk to drivers, sit in, touch, and honk the horns of these vehicles, according to the Paulding Parks, Recreation & Cultural Affairs Department.
The Commercial Truck Driving program at Chattahoochee Tech is a 37-day certificate program emphasizing CDL Class A training. Students also can pursue endorsements in Hazmat, Triple Truck, and Double Truck. There is high industry demand for program graduates.
