Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Because of the Eagle Ford Shale boom, truck drivers are in high demand.

Del Mar College's Transportation Training Services Program's student enrollment is higher than ever.

Reporter Sarah Acosta met with some of the program's instructors and got behind the wheel to see what it takes to drive a 18-wheeler.

The program lasts for three weeks and at the end, students receive a license to drive a semi-trailer truck.
