Because of our partnerships with carriers like American Central Transport, Class A CDL truck drivers at Apex CDL Institute have great entry-level opportunities upon graduation. ACT is a 100% dry van truckload service that is headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, and is still family-owned and operated since its founding in 1972. Apex students will have the opportunity to qualify for Tuition Reimbursement through ACT.
