CDL Job Placement in Portland

If you've been struggling to find trucking jobs, you'll find that going back to school to obtain your commercial driver's license can improve your prospects considerably. However, many CDL training programs can take years to complete, and there's no guarantee that a job will be waiting for you once you're finished. Elite Truck School is proud to offer a short, four-week CDL training program for aspiring commercial drivers in the Portland-area. After you complete the CDL program and earn your CDL, our trucking academy gladly help you find a lucrative position in the transportation industry.

CDL training for truck driving jobs in Portland

Great Jobs for Licensed Drivers

CDL training is your ticket to a wide range of good jobs. Here are a few you might consider.

  • Local Delivery Driver: CDL holders as young as 18 can get a decent job delivering goods in Hillsboro, Gresham, Tigard, and elsewhere in the Portland area. The local delivery of food, furniture, and other products is important to the economy.
  • Long-Haul Driver: Every year, millions of trucks deliver products from the Port of Portland to elsewhere in the country. If you earn a CDL, you can get paid to drive across America.
  • Bus Driver: With the right endorsements, you can drive all sorts of passenger vehicles. For example, you could get a job as a school bus driver or a city bus driver.

Transportation Industry Job Outlook

Today, transportation companies can't hire truck drivers fast enough. More and more Baby Boomers are retiring, leaving a significant void that younger drivers need to fill. According to one estimate, the U.S. will need 330,000 new drivers by 2020. Also, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there will be an 11% increase in truck driver employment from 2012 to 2022. Many people are becoming truck drivers because there's a plenty of room for upward mobility—a driver can start out as an employee and work their way up to an owner/operator or administrator. While there's no guarantee that you will get a job after you earn your CDL, your prospects for employment are much higher than they might be if you choose another field of study.
