The decision of the director is final and the student will receive a letter within five business days stating the decision.
Credit for Previous Training
Policy: CDL DTS School is committed to helping students reach their educational goals as quickly as possible. However, technology changes rapidly and what was learned in an earlier program may no longer be applicable. To ensure that our students graduate with the skills necessary to achieve success in the workplace we will give recognition for previous training only after the student has taken and passed a program proficiency test. Students wishing to receive recognition for previous training must show proof of previous training.
Student Grievance-Complaint/Appeal Process

CDL DTS Policy: Nothing in this policy prevents the student from contacting the Workforce Board (the state licensing agency) at 360-709-4600 at any time with a concern or a complaint. Students who have a complaint or who would like to appeal a dismissal must request in writing an appointment for an interview with the school director. The written request should include the following information:
- Student’s full name and current address
- A statement of the concern including dates, times, instructors, and if applicable, other students involved
- Date of complaint letter and signature of the student
- Three dates in which the student would be available for a meeting with the school director. These dates should be within 10 business days of the complaint
The school director will notify the student in writing of the appointment date in which the concerns or appeal will be addressed. Every effort will be made to bring an amicable closure to the concern. Should it be necessary, a panel of instructors will hear the concerns and will be asked to assist in bringing a resolution to concerns and/or appeals. The student will be notified in writing within five business days of the outcome of the meetings. Should the contract be canceled by either the student or the school the last date of attendance will be used as the date to calculate any refund in accordance with the school’s refund policy.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
CDL DTS Policy: Should the student’s enrollment be terminated or should the student withdraw for any reason, all refunds will be made according to the following refund schedule.
- The school must refund all money paid if the applicant is not accepted. This includes instances where a starting class is canceled by the school.
- The school must refund all money paid if the applicant cancels within five business days (excluding Sundays and holidays) after the day the contract is signed or an initial payment is made, as long as the applicant has not begun training.
- The school may retain an established registration fee equal to 10 percent of the total tuition cost, or $100, whichever is less, if the applicant cancels after the fifth business day after signing the contract or making an initial payment. A “registration fee” is any fee charged by a school to process student applications and establish a student record system.

- When a student, without notice, fails to attend classes for 30 calendar days
- All refunds must be paid within 30 calendar days of the student’s official termination date.
