    I'm a unloader in my UPS HUB in Maryland and I'm planning on taking a certification course at my local community college to get my class A and B CDL. I'm having trouble finding out if UPS will pay for this type of education or not. The websites arent working properly and my human resources at work didnt really know. Anyone know if this type of schooling they will pay for?

    I took a CDL class at a technical college in Spring 2008, I used Earn and Learn and had no problems.

    It depends if your building has earn and learn. Mine does not, so the answer if you are in my building is NO.

    The course I took gave tech college credits. If the course you are looking into doesn't give credits then it probably won't qualify, but I don't know for sure.

    When I took my CDL. I Had to pay out of pocket. Now I believe our local offers a CDL class every couple months.

    It all depends on the area you are in. You need to check with you HR rep. In my area they do. Anyone can bid a feeder job if they with they get sent to school and training.
