Transportation, distribution and logistics
Keep it moving

Cluster description
Transportation careers manage the movement of people and material.  Transportation-related occupations offer high-tech, high-wage opportunities that are at the forefront of globalization and trade.  Did you know that Washington is the nation’s most trade-dependent state?  In fact, one in three Washington jobs depends on international trade.

Necessary skills 

Transportation-related careers demand a good understanding of science and math, excellent written and verbal communication skills and problem-solving ability. 

Educational path 
At SFCC and SCC, most programs prepare students for challenging careers in just two years or, in some cases, one year.  Most programs include both classroom learning and hands-on experience.  Many careers have licensing requirements, which sometimes require postgraduation internships.  Be sure to work with a counselor to develop your personalized educational plan.
