Comments from Graduate: Frank E. Ofori, CTL

As a Logistics Specialist in the US Army, I realized that with the increasing competitiveness in the global economy, it became a necessary for me to continuously upgrade my skills in order to have a competitive edge in the workforce. I took a leap of faith and enrolled in the CTL Program from the American Society of Transportation and Logistics.

I earned my Certified in Transportation and Logistics, (CTL) from the University of Wisconsin Superior's Center for Continuing Education.

First and foremost, I would like to borrow a quote from Aristotle: "The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet". I experienced bitterness when I started this course. Imagine: I had to balance between my work, family and studies for almost 24 hours a day, seven days a week. It practically leaves me with no time and energy to do my personal stuff. However, the fruit which bore after these 4 months of "blood and sweat", long nights of pouring through books and websites, and putting up with assignments and examinations, was sweet and refreshing.

I have never regretted enrolling into the CTL course, because it gave me great insight into the fundamentals of logistics management and purchasing. I have also learned both the theoretical and practical aspects of the subjects which are real, and what I face every day in my work.

Furthermore, the CTL program has helped me to see beyond stores functions and it also broadened my view of the entire transportation and supply chain sector - knowing the importance of both the up and down-stream customers.

Learning and applying the practical concepts that were taught in the Certified in Transportation and Logistics Program have helped me get more respect and positive recognition as an US Army battalion Logistician.

Finally, a quote from Napoleon Hill who said that; "Great achievement is usually born of great sacrifice, and is never the result of selfishness".
