“I truly believe this certification sets you above others and when searching for that employee to satisfy that logistic operation. You will choose the one with the knowledge and experience of the industry. I appreciated the learning objectives through both CLA and CLT.  I have a great knowledge of logistics, but these courses have expanded so much more awareness that benefits me. I have committed myself to this field, and I am confident with every step I make alongside MSSC will increase my career and overall capabilities.”- Aaron Vaughn, CLT Student, & US Army Active Duty Military
