There is no cost to the program! (Program is funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Transportation.) Students will be paid a stipend for each FULL hour of training completed to help with expenses.

The application process starts at the mandatory one hour Informational Orientation followed directly by assessment testing.
The applicant needs to score at least a seventh grade level to be considered for the program. Those who pass the assessment test will be moved into the interview round. After interviews a selection of candidates will be sent for mandatory Drug Screening. Once all steps have been completed we will notify accepted candidates.
