Three Duval County Public Schools’ Logistics teachers were recognized at an American Society of Transportation and Logistics banquet in September for earning their Global Logistics Associate (GLA) certification. Marian Walker and John Russell from Lee High School’s International Logistics Academy and Scott Sutton from Forrest High School’s Logistics Academy trained over the summer and took a rigorous exam to earn the GLA.
The GLA is a nationally recognized certification program that acknowledges the completion of rigorous coursework in logistics and supply chain for entry level positions. This certification program focuses on the general knowledge of logistics/supply chain and the associated functions necessary for the delivery of goods. Obtaining the GLA requires successful completion of a comprehensive exam.
Marian Walker, John Russell and Scott Sutton are now particularly well-suited to prepare students in their Logistics Academies to take the GLA exam and earn an industry credential that will give them an advantage in finding employment in the fast-growing Logistics industry. The GLA credential also articulates to 12 college-credits at many public post-secondary institutions in the state of Florida.
Logistics is now the first industry cluster in Duval County Publics School’s Career and Technical Education programs to have ALL of its teachers earn an industry certification in addition to their professional certificate.
