See what it takes to get behind the wheel of a big rig at Pima Community College’s Truck Driver Training Program Open House on Friday, March 22, 2013.

Those attending the event will learn about a career in an industry full of possibilities. The open house will include a tour of the facility and information on the Truck Driver Training Program, admission requirements and financial assistance options.
