The SCILL Center is staying busy, and this week they’re kicking off their Commercial Driver’s License classes. SCILL Center Director Jerry Gurrado said the six-week program will assist those who are interested in earning their CDL, with two weeks of in-classroom learning followed by two weeks of truck operation. The final two weeks, Gurrado explained, would consist of learning on the road.
Gurrado explained that the class can only accept four students due to the size of a rig. The classes will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
On top of that, the SCILL Center will soon be holding a coat drive Nov. 1 – 16, with drop-off spots for coats, gloves, sweaters or jackets located at Bailey’s Discount Center, Oregon-Davis High School, Ray’s Super Foods, and Pioneer Florist in North Judson. In Knox, Five Star, Key Bank, and Sears will host drop-off spots. Distribution sites and dates will soon be announced.
Gurrado said they will also soon be offering computer classes at the Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox. A class on Microsoft Excel will be held on Friday, Nov. 2, and a class will be held on Microsoft Word on Nov. 9.
The adult automotive repair class also begins today. For more information on any program, call Gurrado at (574) 772-8001.
