Tesimonial of Christopher
Thanks to a course I took in law school and Professor Groves' International Business Transactions course, I was able to help our global freight forwarding RFP team understand the international transportation conventions and national transportation laws referenced in the contracts we'll be entering with our new freight forwarders. The team thought to ask me for help because they knew I was taking transportation law courses and had this background. Before the first year of the program is over I have already been able to provide value to my employer because of this program.

Testimonial of Yolanda
I've worked in the transportation industry the majority of my career. I was in a meeting with our Corporate Attorneys this past Wednesday and the insight and knowledge I had to share literally turned their heads. When they asked me where I gained such insight and knowledge, I sat up a little straighter in my chair and advised "I am an Administrative Law for Transportation Professionals Certification candidate at Florida Coastal School of Law."

Testimonial of Hillary
This program is truly unique and provides a valuable learning opportunity.
From Administrative Law for Transportation Professionals to Customs Law, each class has been exciting, informative, and given me the special knowledge and confidence that will allow me to grow as an attorney in the future, specifically in the area of transportation and logistics. The program's professors are highly skilled and accomplished.

Testimonial of Kristina
My experience as a student in the Certificate of Transportation Regulation program has been extremely rewarding-every professor is a highly respected professional in the industry and is able to provide both the authoritative and current insight into the subject matter as well as real world experience in using the information being taught. After 15 years in transportation, I am thrilled to be able to continue my education and learn more in depth about the industry and current issues and trends which enable me to better serve my customers.

Testimonial of Ben
I just completed my Certificate in Transportation Regulation and found the course of study to be both challenging and rewarding. I work as a military logistics professional and also teach logistics and supply chain management topics at the university level. Although educated in the operational side of logistics, I found that I was lacking in my knowledge of many law-related topics, always leaving such topics as contract negotiation, requests for proposals, regulation interpretation, and other areas for the lawyers to tend to. After my time at Florida Coastal, this is no longer the case.
As a military logistician, I’ve already put my knowledge to use in several instances, such as writing and reviewing contractual agreements and advising my superiors on the finer points of logistics-related environmental regulation. As an academic, I’ve incorporated what I’ve learned into my own courses and am no longer shy about delving into regulatory and legal topics. There are so many different courses to choose from that I was able to tailor the Certificate program specifically to my needs to fill my own knowledge gaps. For that reason, I highly recommend this program to anyone at any level of education or experience in the logistics and transportation industry. Everyone can learn something new from this course of study.
