LOGISTICS READINESS CERTIFICATE
(Course ID: TRDL LOG1)
There is a foundational level of knowledge and skills that front-line workers in supply chain logistics should understand. To remain competitive, logistics-related companies increasingly need a flexible, knowledgeable, problem-solving workforce. This means workers that can keep pace with rapid changes in technology and processes, be easily trainable, and work in a global environment. These workers must also be competent in the critical work activities common across all facilities within the supply chain: safety, quality control, communications, teamwork, good workplace conduct and familiarity with the key computer systems that underpin supply chain operations.

In 2008, logistics industry subject matter experts identified skills standards for two levels of certification. The first is the Certified Logistics Associate (CLA), based upon the individual's command of the foundational knowledge and skills.

Students will also participate in a portion of the College's interactive HIRE Camp devoted to the discussion and enhancement of soft skills education. The Secret Life of an Exceptional Employee module helps participants better understand integrity, trustworthiness, attitude, cooperation, reliability, flexibility, adaptability, and motivation and how they impact job performance.

Each participant will sit for the national CLA exam which is administered through the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC). He or she will also participate in a WorkKeys assessment based upon a predetermined occupational profile within the Logistics industry. Participants will be assessed in four key categories: Applied Math, Locating Information, Observation, and Reading for Information.
