The Transportation Leadership Graduate Certificate (TLGC) program is an award-winning, online graduate certificate program that provides transportation and logistics graduate courses. These courses will enhance your knowledge and skills in the transportation industry. Sponsored by the Regional University Transportation Centers (RUTCs), the TLGC gives you training to perform better on the job and expertise to advance within your organization.
Why should I enroll in the TLGC program if I’m already employed in the transportation industry?
Professional growth and professional development hours (PDH) are important for all transportation professionals. Continuing education is extremely valuable for people who are already in management positions or who want to move into management. We realized that for busy professionals continuing education is often difficult to fit into the schedule. All TLGC courses are offered online, so you can complete the courses on your own time and from your home, office, or even while you travel. Continuing education improves your technical and leadership skills. Plus, it’s a great way to show your employer that you have a desire for career advancement and personal growth!
Is earning the TLGC worth my time and effort?
If you need to complete professional development hours each year, why not have something more to show for the time and effort you’ve invested? TLGC courses are offered through accredited universities and can be counted for PDHs. You can earn the TLGC and PDHs at the same time. Participating in the TLGC program demonstrates both your technical and leadership abilities—the combination of these abilities is something employers look for in management.
Did we mention that the graduate credits you earn can open the door to another advanced degree program in the future, as most universities will allow you to transfer up to 9 graduate credits into a program. Continuing your education is always valuable and could be just what you need to take your career to the next level.
Is the TLGC an option for workforce development?
The TLGC program is a great option for workforce development for your organization. Most workforce development programs are a blanket that managers hope will meet each employee’s needs, but every employee is unique. The TLGC offers a variety of courses each semester, so students can choose courses that fit their interests and needs. Tailoring the certificate to individual needs makes the TLGC program a nationally recognized workforce development option. The Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) awarded the TLGC program the 2011 Innovation in Education Award for its ability to aid in the development and training of transportation professionals. The TLGC builds technical and leadership skills in its students, so we encourage you to consider incorporating TLGC into your workforce development plans!
