In 2017, Heavy Metal Training Institute founder Bobbie Wolf noticed the need for CDL training in Northeast Oklahoma. There were no opportunities available to the rural communities or Native American Tribes, so Ms. Wolf decided to start her own school.
HMTI was founded in 2019 in Vinita, Oklahoma. Initially, the school was operating out of a small office on Route 66 and with only one truck. Due to the high demand, two more trucks were added to the fleet. HMTI also partnered with Cherokee Nation Career Services to provide Commercial Drivers License training for students in the High Voltage Lineman program.
In August of 2020, HMTI relocated its main campus to a larger facility in Big Cabin, Oklahoma. The 11-acre campus will be custom designed for teaching students to earn their CDL. It is large enough to safely train students to operate 18-wheel trucks before they drive on the road in real-world conditions.
HMTI is licensed by the Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools (OBPVS), 3700 North Classen Boulevard #250, Oklahoma City, OK 73118, (405) 528-3370.
