Capital Transportation Academy Approach to CDL Training


Capital Transportation Academy strives for the highest of quality of commercial driver training.  We feel that the following criteria sets us apart from other training providers:

  1. Small Class Sizes – you aren’t competing for resources at Capital Transportation Academy and with class sizes ranging from 4 to 8 students. You will benefit from more direct interaction with your instructors.
  2. Quality Instructors – Our program is student-centered and we know what the industry is looking for in a graduate.  Our instructors are engaged in your learning and we take care in selecting and training instructors for the best fit with the Capital Transportation Academy training model. 
  3. State of the Art Curriculum – we purchased the best instructor-led training curriculum in the industry that meets the standards and regulations set forth by the Ohio Department of Public Safety for commercial driver training schools. 
  4. Modern Training Facilities – Our newly renovated 5,000 foot training facility includes a 5-acre training compound. 
  5. Modern Equipment – Capital Transportation Academy has chosen to utilize late model Freightliner Cascadia and Columbia tractors for Class-A commercial driver training.  Freightliner is the industry market share leader, and when our graduates are hired by an industry carrier, there is a good chance they will be driving a Freightliner.
