Northwest State Community College, powered by Custom Training Solutions, is now offering CDL training classes to local companies and individuals throughout northwest Ohio. These three and four-week programs are designed to do more than train new drivers on the bare minimum needed to pass a CDL driver’s license exam. We offer students the confidence and experience to become safety-conscious drivers.
