The program will teach how to drive moving trucks.
LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Metro leaders are hoping a new federally funded program will help get some unemployed Louisville residents back on the job.
Free training will soon be available for 100 people who want to become long-distance moving truck drivers.
Mayor Greg Fisher said this is a job category that is about to boom in Kentucky and across the nation.
"These jobs start out paying at a minimum $40,000 with benefits with potential to grow to $50,000 to $80,000 a year, good jobs," said Fisher. "And these jobs are in high demand, and employers are ready to hire."
Candidates must have a high school diploma or GED.
