Northern Lakes launches Class 1 Driver Training


Thanks to the acquisition of a new semi-truck, Northern Lakes College will offer Class 1 Driver Training at its campus. The truck will allow Northern Lakes to offer the standardized Mandatory Entry Level Training (MELT) program, which is mandatory for commercial Class 1 drivers in the province. The program includes classroom theory components and in-yard and in-cab training where students take part in vehicle inspections and practice skills behind the wheel. “Ensuring the availability of this training in-region means increased accessibility for students,” said Northern Lakes Dean of Business, Academics, Trades & Regional Stewardship Amy Saitz.
