For the last four years, the Technology & Logistics Program at East Los Angeles College (ELAC) has been able to provide college credit classes that will include national logistics certification to address worker preparedness in the logistics, supply chain, and transportation industries. The program is designed to upgrade the skills of incumbent workers currently in the workforce. The Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) has partnered with ELAC by providing exams for a nationally recognized industry certification in the Logistics Industry. Working in collaboration with MSSC, ELAC’s goal is to prepare more than 400 workers as Certified Logistics Associates (CLA) and Certified Logistics Technicians (CLT). The course materials and certification exams are being made available to students and participants free of charge (a $460 value). This opportunity is made possible because of a Department of Labor (DOL) grant that ELAC’s Technology & Logistics Program recently received.
ELAC will also provide advanced hands-on technology training geared to the logistics industry. Some of these programs include technical competency for:
- Spreadsheets and Databases
- Green GIS Routing Software
- GPS, RFID, WMS applications
- Business writing and Customer Service
- Supervision for Industry

Department of Labor Grant awarded to Technology & Logistics Program
The CAOT Department recently collaborated with three other community colleges in the region to form the Southern California Logistics Technology Collaborative (SCLTC). The US Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration, recently awarded this collaborative $4.3 million to provide entry, mid, and advanced training for careers in logistics. This funding is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
ELAC’s CAOT Department’s portion of this funding is $900,000 which will go toward strengthening its existing Logistics program. Current curriculum, including online courses, will be enhanced and new classes developed. Perhaps the most exciting component of these efforts will be the development of two new certification programs under the auspices of the Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC): the Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) and Certified Logistics Technician (CLT). Both of these certificates are now offered as credit courses and started in Fall 2010.
