cls1Contract Land Staff (CLS) values and understands the need for training, and has formalized many professional training sessions and developed curriculums, along with a variety of Right of Way business related modules for many companies including our own. Leading these endeavors is the CLS Professional Development Institute (PDI) whose mission is to provide the best in Right of Way training for the Public and Private Sector of Right of Way – Pipeline, Electric, Utility, Transportation, Renewables, Water, Chemical, etc.
The truth is that no one learns about Right of Way in college. Much, if not all Right of Way experience is learned on the job. So how do you ensure that you have Right of Way professionals working for you? You start by calling CLS.

CLS’s Project Right of Way Training programs are taught by many of the company’s Project Officers, Directors and Managers either in-house at CLS, or on-site at project or client offices. In July, 2012 we began offering a Right of Way Certificate program in collaboration with the University of Houston-Downtown / College of Business. Each of our instructors is a Subject Matter Expert (SME) in their own right with many years of real Right of Way experience, and well-honed Right of Way skills. In addition, our highly experienced Project Directors, Project Managers and other specialists are available to train agents ‘on the ground’ and as needed through the life of their Projects.Click here for information on the UHD/ College of Business ROW Certificate Program.

Classes can be conducted at CLS corporate offices in Sugar Land, Texas, on-site at project or client offices throughout the U.S., IRWA Region and Chapter meetings, International Conferences, or at other locations as requested.
