The new six-week courses, Supply Chain Management Principles and Warehousing Operations, are the flagship classes of the non-credit program. The program will offer training in eight entry- to mid-level industry certifications to prepare workers to enter or advance in their supply chain careers.
Students will be able to earn industry certifications, endorsed by the national Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), which cover several key aspects of supply chain management:
- demand planning and forecasting
- customer service
- product assembly
- inventory management
Students also will have the opportunity to enhance their career readiness skills and engage with industry professionals through guest lectures, networking events and industry tours. Nineteen students are enrolled in the program, which launched March 17. Additional courses in Customer Service Operations and Transportation Operations are slated to begin in May.
