Tuition-free professional log truck driver training returns to Oliver
Okanagan College Media Release

Log Truck DriverThose looking to step into the cab and start up careers as professional log truck drivers can tap into a tuition-free training program coming to Okanagan College in November.

The Professional Log Truck Driver program will be offered by OC in Oliver starting on Nov. 18.

The 16-week program includes 10 weeks of theory and classroom training, followed by six weeks of hands-on practical driver training.

It’s being offered tuition-free for eligible students who: meet the definition of an “EI client”, are eligible for WorkBC Case Management and who have been referred by a WorkBC Case Manager, and who possess a valid driver’s license.

The program is made possible by funding and support from the Federal and Provincial governments and WorkBC.

“This program was designed by the BC Forest Safety Council in consultation with log truck and truck harvesting advisory group members across the province,” explains Dennis Silvestrone, Director of Continuing Studies and Corporate Training for Okanagan College. “For us, this program represents an invaluable opportunity for the community and for industry. With cuts on the mill side of forest sector work, we know there is a work force in need of training and other paths in the Forestry sector.

This training will also help us work with industry to enhance safety performance and professionalism for drivers. And for existing Class 1 drivers looking to specialize or uplevel their skills, they can tap into great training in hauling logs and driving on resource roads.”

For more information about the program, visit okanagan.bc.ca/logtruck, call 1-866-352-0103 ext. 8249 or email
