semi-181x151MTI offers new opportunities to Ozark Technical College students

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Midwest Technical Institute’s Springfield, Mo. campus invites all students impacted by the recent closure announcement of Ozark Technical College’s CDL program to continue their truck driving training at MTI.

MTI admissions representatives are available to field phone calls, walk-ins and other inquiries from former OTC CDL students interested in continuing their career training as a member of the MTI family.

OTC announced the closure of its CDL program around May 1, and the program will officially cease operations June 1. According to several local media outlets, the decision to shutter the program was due to low enrollment numbers and lack of adequate resources.

According to the American Trucking Associations, the truck driving industry is already experiencing a driver shortage of more than 30,000 drivers, a figure that is expected to increase through the year 2020. To help close this gap in the Springfield and surrounding area, MTI offers a 20-week Professional Truck Driving Program and 20-day CDL Training Course to provide students with the knowledge and expertise to get on the road as a productive member of today’s workforce.
