Thomas Nelson Community College Offers CDL Training Options

Sign up here for our free newsletter that tells you about the newest stories, three mornings each week.

HAMPTON—Supply chain disruptions caused by the pandemic have created a huge need for big-rig truck drivers. On Saturday, November 6 from 10am to 1pm, Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton will hold a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) training session at the Peninsula Workforce Development Center located at 600 Butler Farm Road in Hampton.

The information session is free, but advance registration is required. At the session, attendees will learn about TNCC’s CDL program, full- and part-time course options, and how to get a CDL in as little as four weeks. No prior commercial vehicle experience is needed to sign up and applicants may qualify for free training.

To register for the informational session, call 757-825-4070, or visit www.tncc.edu/cdlregistration.

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at feedback@peninsulachronicle.com.
