Mayor Sarno and CDO Sheehan Remind Residents of Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Job Training Program

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno and Chief Development Officer (CDO) Tim Sheehan are reminding residents who are interested in getting their CDL License to take advantage of MassHire's CDL training program.

Back in July, 2021, Mayor Sarno and CDO Tim Sheehan announced that the City of Springfield had partnered with the MassHire Hampden Country Workforce Board, and Tri-State CDL Training Center, Inc. in Springfield, to provide free Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) Training to approximately sixty (60) Springfield residents.

The program will be open to Springfield residents whose household incomes are at or below 80% of Area Median Income. Applicants must be unemployed or under-employed (working part-time), be legally eligible to work in the United States, and have a high school diploma or equivalent.

Mayor Sarno stated, “Chief Development Officer Tim Sheehan and I are proud to announce this CDL job training program initiative for our Springfield residents and want to encourage those who are interested to take advantage of this program. I want to thank MassHire and Tri-State CDL Training Center for their partnership on this vital initiative. This program continues my administration’s commitment to implementing job training programs that will give our residents the skills needed to succeed and not just have a job but have a successful career that offers a good salary.”


There are still slots available for Springfield residents to take advantage of the MassHire CDL training program and get their CDL License. Call now for more information and/or to enroll.
