nline education has come a long way since its con- ception. Universities around the world are recog- nizing the potential for online education to reach


students and meet students’ needs. Online education is a great option for access to high-quality courses for many peo- ple who have a desire to learn, but don’t have time to attend class in a traditional setting. Continuing education for many professionals has


improved vastly because of online education options. The Transportation Leadership Graduate Certificate (TLGC) programme is an award-winning, nationally recognized cer- tificate programme in the US that provides online transpor- tation graduate courses to transport professionals. The TLGC creates an opportunity for professional growth


and transportation workforce development, as it has become a unique way to simultaneously fulfill professional develop- ment requirements, complete continuing education cred- its and earn graduate-level credits. Sponsored by the US Regional University Transportation Centers, the programme is endorsed by federal, state and private sector transport leaders.


A FLEXIBLE PROGRAMME FOR BUSY TRANSPORT LEADERS AND PROFESSIONALS The TLGC is a post-baccalaureate certificate in transport and is offered completely online. The programme attracts transportation students from around the globe who desire to expand their knowledge beyond a bachelor’s degree, earn graduate-level credit or complete professional development hours (PDH). The courses are offered through top trans- portation education programs at accredited universities in the United States by leading transportation faculty, ensuring high-quality courses. Earning a certificate in transportation provides profes-


sionals in the industry with further or continuing education. It also guides those in related disciplines, like civil engineer- ing or environmental engineering, as they move into the transportation workforce. The TLGC transportation classes cover vital information


regarding design and operation of highways, the movement of people and freight, air transport facilities, water trans- portation, and transit. Transportation course topics offered include:
