Warehouse Manager


Behind every business, materials move. The Warehouse Operations, Inventory Management, and Purchasing and Procurement certificate programs at the Community College of Aurora are designed to provide you with real-world skills in the areas of logistics.

  • Warehouse Operations: The process controls, inspections, automation handling, picking, receiving, storing and management systems involved in today’s modern warehouses are more sophisticated than ever. Initial and incumbent workers now require an equally formal education to understand and advance their career in this arena of logistics.
  • Inventory Management: Embedded within logistics management and process flow is the mastery of company inventory.  You will learn inventory tracking and scheduling, inventory reporting, real-time product positioning, process controls, and inventory software.
  • Purchasing and Procurement: Purchasing is the transaction of buying items. Procurement is the strategic thinking of collective purchasing activity. Discount buying, forecasting, domestic and international trading terms, and collective purchasing with other businesses are examples of the more calculated approach to this supply chain operation.

"The Community College of Aurora Logistics programs broadens your business knowledge and experience base. It makes you more valuable in the eyes of the employer"
