CDL Truck Driver Training Being Offered at A-B Tech Madison!

A-B Tech Economic and Workforce Development/Continuing Education and Caldwell Community College & Technical Institute are partnering to offer Truck Driver Training.  Training will be held here in Madison County.

This truck driver training program is certified by the Professional Truck Driving Institute (PTDI) located in Alexandria, VA. PTDI is the first non-profit organization to develop uniform skills performance, curriculum and certification standards for the trucking industry and to award course certification to entry-level truck driver finishing programs.

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) supports the PTDI curriculum as representing the basis for adequate training of entry-level drivers.

This class does include Commercial Driver's License (CDL) Permit and Endorsement Instruction.

If you were unavailable to attend orientation, but are interested in learning more about the truck driver training course, please give us a call!  Registration date to be announced.  Payment plan and funding available!  For more information, contact us at 828-398-7700 or drop by campus to see us!

Earn a Business Administration Degree at A-B Tech Madison and A-B Tech South

Starting in fall 2015, A-B Tech Madison and A-B Tech South are partnering to offer the entire associate degree program in Business Administration at either location.

The business specific courses will be offered through interactive video (ITV) and the general education requirements will be available either as regular offerings at each site or through ITV.

Fall Semester schedule:  BUS 110, Intro to Business (MW, 1 p.m. - 1:50 p.m.); BUS 115, Business Law I (TTH, 10 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.); MKT 120: Principles of Marketing (TTH, 9 a.m. - 9:50 a.m.)

Students can easily pair the above courses with general education classes at each location for a full-time course schedule.  This is a very exciting opportunity for Madison and South, and one that will benefit current students and also improve programmatic access for prospective students who live near these sites.


ITV – Interactive Video

ITV is now not only available on the A-B Tech Madison site, allowing students the opportunity to take classes on the Asheville campus from the Madison site, we now have several classes being hosted on the Madison Site and broadcast to other A-B Tech campuses!

ITV provides students the opportunity to sit in the classroom at one location and watch the entire instructional component via real-time video from the host location.  ITV technology allows the student the opportunity to ask questions, etc., during the class.  Courses offered via ITV are less likely to be canceled!
