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.

To learn more about the training and how to apply for a training scholarship, sign up for an informational session at www.kentuckianaworks.org/ramp or call KentuckianaWorks at (502) 574-4723.
