Workforce Certificate

This program will provide an in-depth study of the primary focus areas within the dynamic world of logistics. It will provide the skills necessary to those who are aiming for a career within these functions; or it will provide a stepping stone to a possible management position for those who are already employed in a logistics function.

Career Opportunities, Rapid Placement

Because we created the program by working closely with leading logistics companies, our curriculum has been designed to meet their needs precisely. This means graduates of our program will have all the qualifications they need to enter the industry successfully. And if you’re already working in a transportation-related business, the program can help you advance your career. In fact, the local transportation employers we’ve worked with strongly support the idea of additional education for their employees.

A Certificate or a Degree — It’s Your Choice

If you’re on a fast track, this Workforce Credit Certificate can be completed in just 12 months. If you’re thinking about earning a degree, in just two years you can earn an associate in applied science (A.A.S.) degree in Business Administration, with a concentration in logistics and distribution. Both programs are designed to meet the needs of employers, including skills in logistics, computer applications, teamwork and communications.
