The Logistics industry is a variety of companies that move materials to manufacturers and goods to the marketplace. Recent trends in manufacturing have moved the production of goods to other countries with low-cost labor resulting in an explosion of international trade that has dramatically increased the volume goods entering through Southern California shipping ports. This rapid expansion has made the Logistics Industry among the fastest growing industries in Southern California.

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.
