Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann is hoping a new training program will supply more certified truck drivers for Indiana's growing logistics industry.

Ellspermann announced Wednesday the Indiana Department of Workforce Development, Ivy Tech Community College and the Wells County Economic Development agency will help pay for 20 students to earn their commercial driver license certification.

Workforce Development will issue grants covering the $4,000 needed for certification. Candidates must be unemployed, underemployed or have recently earned a GED.
