    Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics 

    The Transportation, Distribution and Logistics cluster includes the planning, management, and movement of people, materials, and goods by road, pipeline, air, rail and water and related professional and technical support services such as transportation infrastructure planning and management, logistics services, mobile equipment and facility maintenance. This area provides instruction that develops manipulative skills, safety, judgment, technical knowledge, and related occupational information. These skills prepare students for profitable employment in trade and industrial pursuits. It also trains students for industrial occupations through contextual instruction in the layout, design, production, processing, assembling, testing, diagnosing, and maintaining of industrial, commercial, and residential goods and services. Individuals who have actual wage-earning experiences in the field provide instruction. Classrooms are laboratory equipped to emulate industry or are actual work sites, through such training arrangements as cooperative education, internships, or apprenticeships. Opportunities to develop and apply leadership, social, civic, and business-related skills are provided through the Skills USA, the student organization for young people enrolled in these programs. As an integral part of the instructional program, club activities enhance and expand classroom instruction.
