Very soon A-B Tech will begin offering two courses leading to a certification as a Logistics Technician. This certification can open the door to a higher paying job with good future potential or improve your skills with your current employer ensuring your continued value as an employee.
Many businesses and manufacturers in Buncombe and surrounding counties need well-trained people to ensure their inventory is well managed and their products are packaged and shipped for the best customer service and satisfaction.
With your high-school diploma or GED and this certification you will be qualified to start in the field of logistics as a material handler or shipping supervisor or advance if you are already working in logistics.
Training and testing will be conducted as online E-learning and classroom training. During your training you will learn the technical knowledge needed to understand the world of logistics. There will be two courses to help you prepare for the certification test. The first is a foundational course leading to a Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) and the second leads to the mid-level Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) credential.
