According to a press release, the center is a 16,000-square-foot training facility where students will learn the skills necessary to become a professional truck driver or supply chain manager. The facility houses six classrooms, an 8.3-acre driving track with six backing pads and a truck driving simulator.
“We have seen how vitally important maintaining a strong supply chain is during this pandemic,” LSCS Chancellor Stephen C. Head said in the release. “This new state-of-the-art center will help train both professional truck drivers and logistic managers to keep our country moving in the right direction.”
The grand opening celebration included videos and photos of the new center and featured guest speakers to discuss the need for professional truck drivers and supply chain managers.
The LSC-Transportation & Global Logistics Technology Center, which opened its doors to students June 1, is an approved Texas Department of Public Safety Third Party Testing facility. Students who finish the LSC CDL program can be tested at the center 24-48 hours after completion of the course work.
