St. Petersburg College’s new Supply Chain Management program offers students training courses in eight entry to mid-level industry certifications preparing them for in-demand jobs in logistics. The training includes internships, apprenticeships, on-the-job training opportunities and is offered through a $1.5 million federal LINCS grant.
Jobs in logistics expected to rise 26%
The demand for supply chain talent is on the rise. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs in logistics are estimated to grow by 26 percent from 2010-2020!
Supply chain management involves all activities that bring products and services to market, including planning, procurement, manufacturing and logistics and include job roles as logistics assistants, warehouse and production associates, supply chain specialists and analysts, fulfillment supervisors, purchasing, fleet and transportation managers.
