Our continual commitment to student success is geared toward helping you determine what you need to get ahead, whether you are a recent high school graduate or an adult who wants to continue getting an education.

Ohio Business College – Truck Driving Academy opened a campus in Middletown in September 2010. Previously, the college operated under the name of Tri-State Driver Training, Inc. Tri-State Driver Training, Inc. was established in 1969 by a fleet owner who foresaw the industry need for drivers who could meet U.S. Department of Transportation standards and who would have the formal training to be safe on the road. The school was acquired by the present owners in 1986, who greatly expanded its facilities and services but retained the ideals and goals of its founder. During this time, the corporation assumed the name of Tri-State Semi Driver Training, Inc., for the purpose of more direct identification of the type of training provided.
