ELIZABETH - As part of a nationwide consortium of colleges and universities participating in a LINCS grant, Union County College has a new training program to offer in eight different areas of Supply Chain Management (SCM). The program modules are designed to prepare workers for entry level or mid-level jobs at companies involved with the manufacture and/or movement of goods in New Jersey.
Four of the training modules are ready for on-site training at interested companies and Union County College seeks employers for whom training in these areas would benefit their existing employees. “We are seeking companies who will bring us in to train existing staff. This training carries no cost for the participating employers.”
Areas of training are: Supply Chain Management Principles, Warehouse Operations, Customer Service Operations and Transportation Operations. Each module is classroom based, forty (40) hours long and can be scheduled to meet workplace needs.
Employers who would like more information or would like to participate in this on-site training program can contact the LINCS program at 908-965-6001 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The program prepares participants to sit for the certification exams endorsed by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP). Content was developed with industry input.
