Northwest Arkansas Community College is rolling out a new trucking program with a, get this, truck driving simulator.

  • School funding: Arkansas Department of Higher Education awarded NWACC a Regional Workforce Grant of $288,700, making the new program possible. The course prepares new students to obtain a class A, B, or C license, and re-equips experienced drivers. 
  • Test drive: The program offers up to 40hrs with “in-cab simulation maneuvering, and evaluation and readiness assessments.” The simulator is an exact replica of a commercial vehicle that simulates its real life characteristics.
