Our LINCS Supply Chain Management (SCM) program has been a tremendous success for our students. The training, which includes the opportunity to earn up to eight SCPro Fundamentals industry certifications, covers a wide variety of Supply Chain Management topics and opens the door to the wealth of jobs available across the industry; particularly the abundance of supply chain management jobs in Florida.
Supply Chain job placement help
SPC’s LINCS program is also offering job placement help and career readiness workshops for program participants looking for career advancement and employment opportunities. Program students are invited to meet with our Career Outreach Specialist, Mark Quinzi, for a comprehensive career readiness assessment during which information is provided pertaining to the student’s:
- Interview Skills
- LinkedIn Profile
- Job Search Strategies
- Networking Opportunities, etc.
New Supply Chain subplan for Business A.S. Degree
In addition, starting Fall 2016, SPC’s College of Business, which houses the LINCS Program, will be launching a NEW Supply Chain Management subplan as part of the Business Administration A.S. Degree. The Supply Chain Management courses included in the new subplan give students the opportunity to earn specific SCPro Fundamentals industry certifications in addition to the Associate of Science degree.
Advantages for Supply Chain employers and students
The LINCS program brings together individuals interested in enhancing their knowledge of supply chain management and employers seeking to fill open positions. Students can network with industry professionals during guest speaker engagements, industry tours, specialized job fairs, etc.
Employers, in turn, have access to a diverse pool of candidates to fill their open positions. Many employer partners have provided information on current openings, which in turn, are shared with program participants. This advantage is a win-win for both employers and students; especially since our classes carry the national CSCMP backed SCPro Fundamentals industry certification opportunity.
In addition to the above resources, CSCMP is also offering all students who earn an SCPro Fundamentals certification the opportunity to join the professional organization at the student rate of $40 per year. This benefit which caries with it a connection to SCM Professionals and Companies is an added advantage for students who are presently looking for employment or those wishing to network with industry peers. The LINCS program is also affordable, accelerated (most classes are four to six-weeks) and offers flexible schedules.
Taken individually or by creating a customized plan, the classes will provide fundamental knowledge to those new to the Supply Chain Management sector or supplement an employee’s current job function by preparing them for the next phase of their career.
The SCPro Fundamentals certification classes include:
- SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT PRINCIPLES – FREE to all students
- WAREHOUSING OPERATIONS
- SUPPLY MANAGEMENT AND PROCUREMENT
- INVENTORY MANAGEMENT
- CUSTOMER SERVICE OPERATIONS
