Read the full release:

Beginning March 11, Middle Georgia Technical College will offer Commercial Truck Driving (CTD) courses in Putnam County at the Central Georgia Technical College campus.  The courses will enable students to earn their Commercial Driver's License within eight weeks.

Registration for the truck driving courses will last until the first day of classes, which is March 11.  Applications, along with the $15 application fee, should be submitted to the Central Georgia Technical College Putnam County Center located at 580 James Marshall Bypass in Eatonton.

To assist with the costs associated with the Commercial Truck Driving program, students may be eligible to receive the PELL Grant.  PELL Grants for the CTD program are funded by the PELL Grant Experiment, which is a study sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education that temporarily expands eligibility for PELL  

Grants to students who enroll in selected short-term vocational or career training programs.  The PELL Grant Experiment focuses on the effects of expanded access to PELL grants on students' employment and earnings.   

The U.S. Department of Education will randomly select qualified students to receive the grant through this experimental program.  To qualify, students must be accepted into the MGTC Commercial Truck Driving program and complete the 2012-2013 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) with the Middle Georgia Technical College FAFSA Code, 014625.
