Hawaiian Trades Academy CDL-A Program

Living on an island means many of our goods are shipped or flown in. The trucking industry is vital for moving cargo from Hawaiʻi ports and airports to their final destination. The Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Program is designed to provide hands-on training to students interested in driving commercial vehicles and focuses on obtaining a CDL-A license.

Through the Hawaiian Trades Academy we help participants to develop the skills and access resources necessary to kickstart a career in a trade industry. Upon completion of the program, our students leave with hands-on training, mentorship and relationships with leaders in their field, foundational financial literacy, and job placement assistance.
