Free CDL Seminar
Free CDL Seminar sponsored by Killeen ISD.
Open to the public.
As the nationwide shortage of school bus drivers continues to affect school districts all over the country, Killeen ISD will try a unique approach Thursday by holding a CDL seminar for drivers. Potential school bus drivers need a commercial driver’s license in order to drive. At the seminar Thursday night, KISD will provide support for drivers to get a free CDL and training from the school district.
The seminar is free and open to the public. It will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday at the Killeen ISD board room, 200 N. WS Young Drive.
Drivers who attend the seminar will learn about:
- How to obtain a CDL
- How Killeen ISD provides a free CDL if employed as a KISD Bus Driver
- Killeen ISD’s paid training for drivers
- $1,000 bonuses for new drivers
- Annual incentives up to $3,320
- Extra pay for trip driving
“This is a phenomenal opportunity for anyone interested in obtaining a CDL and the important and rewarding work of transporting children to and from school every day,” KISD Chief Human Resources Officer Steve Cook said. “We’ll do everything we need to do to help them get the CDL and get into a very rewarding career.”
