This license allows a person to haul their heavy equipment to a job site or drive a mobile crane on public roadways. These truck driving programs teach a person the basic skills and knowledge needed to drive a Class-A commercial vehicle and to get their Class-A CDL license. Both ATS heavy equipment programs include the Class-A CDL training and licensing.Read more...

I just want to say thank you for the training and certification I received at ATS. I am now working for Tanco running a 50 ton Grove RT. I also run the forklift, skid steer and backhoe making $26.00 an hour with $10.00 hire per diem. We travel all year spending a few months in each place building storage tanks.Greg Martineau
Been here for the last 3 years for heavy and crane and it’s always nice to see the staff and catch up on things. Really enjoy coming back. The staff is really good at what they do.Tyler Morrow
All the instructors are helpful and knowledgeable with both the course study, as well as with industry information.Steve Gonzalez
Chris is a phenomenal teacher. He takes pride in his work and is very informative. I think that he does well at keeping people calm and uses his experience to help others. I really enjoy this school and I think it’s a positive atmosphere.Tad Hughes
After 8/1/14, I will be entering second crane program. Up to this point, I couldn’t be happier with my decision to come here. The staff is great and instructors are phenomenal. I would most certainly recommend this school to any one of my friends, and I look forward to my upcoming training.John Bermudez
I graduated from the crane program in May. I just wanted to send an email to say thank you to you and everyone in the crane department. I got a job with a local company Rose Steel Inc just 25 minutes from my house. ATS taught me everything I needed to enter a career that is more than I could have imagined. Just 3 months out of school and I got my MA hoisting license driving a company truck with everything paid for and operating and maintaining my crane. I run a 2002 Link-Belt HTC-8670 70 ton truck crane but have also gotten days in the 1978 Link-Belt HC-218A 100 ton friction rig and a 1969 Link-Belt HC-218 82 ton friction rig. I could not have made a better decision than to come to your program. Hope everything is going well over in the farmlands. And now with the warmer weather be careful on that badass Honda rebel keep it under 100.Jake fowler
