Norfolk Works, TCC Job Training Program and HRT develop a CDL hiring program that WORKS!

Norfolk Works’ DriveNOW training program successfully completed its pilot phase. Nine students entered the pilot, all 9 passed their CDL permit tests, all 9 graduated, and all 9 were hired on full time by HRT last week. Fail rates for non-DriveNOW students at HRT taking their CDL tests are high as 60%.

 

Of course, none of this would be possible if it was not for our very own Norfolk EDA and their generous support. Chairman Lee and members of the EDA were present last night to accept a recognition award presented to EDA/Norfolk Development Department. Norfolk Works was presented with a recognition award as well.

 

As a result of our collective efforts, many of these Norfolk residents more than tripled their household incomes in just 6 weeks; moreover, their newfound certifications and skills will help to increase the talent pool of in-demand CDL drivers, not only for HRT, but for the private sector too. Undoubtedly, many of these students will continue to grow their careers in the years to come and be hired by members of our Norfolk business community.
