A hero is someone who has given their life to a cause larger than themselves, and we’re proud to be able to support Unites States veterans in career development through our professional truck driving training program. Through partnership with several organizations, we offer funding options to many veterans to ease the financial impact of tuition and fees. The savings don’t stop there, as a high percentage of our graduates are hired into companies that offer full tuition reimbursement. Some of our veteran funding partners include:

Our truck driving expertise began with our founder, Greg, who graduated from a Junior College Truck Driving program in 1983. From then on, Greg lived behind the wheel of everything from flatbeds to tankers and reefers to vans to master the craft of commercial transportation. His knowledge and experience greatly influence the curriculum of our CDL training program, and Elite Truck School is known to be the best professional truck driver training program in the Hillsboro/Portland area, all thanks to him. Greg is passionate about cultivating a program that caters to supporting veterans who wish to reenter the workforce, and we encourage them to start with us in a place that they’ll feel comfortable and have the utmost opportunity for success.

Secure. Reliable. Liberating. The commercial transportation industry is booming, and now is a better time than ever to make the first step toward entering an industry full of opportunity. Career opportunities begin with attaining a commercial driver’s license, and we offer professional CDL training programs to help you get the job done. Then, brush up on your driving skills with our truck driving refresher course, where you’ll jumpstart your opportunity for landing a job in the trucking industry.

Taking the leap to sign up for our Portland-based CDL training program is the first step needed to enter the trucking industry. Our courses aren’t your typical CDL training classes. Class sizes are kept small, and students receive specialized attention from our experienced instructors who have served several years in the industry and provide guidance for career objectives and CDL job placement.

Opportunities in commercial transportation are endless, and it’s one of the few occupations that allows you to travel the country while making it worth your while.
