5 Reasons Why You Should Get Certified in Warehouse Operations, Inventory Management, or Purchasing and Procurement
According to data by Invesp, 62% of U.S. consumers purchase something online at least once a month.
Our world of online shopping, free shipping, and next-day delivery has changed not only our buying habits but also the workforce. Materials move at rapid speeds. Warehouses are more sophisticated than ever before. Complicated inventories must be tracked with pinpoint precision.
Long story short, companies like Amazon and Walmart are changing how consumers do business and what’s going on behind the scenes.
That’s why the Community College of Aurora (CCA) collaborated with industry partners to develop three new job-relevant certificates: Warehouse Operations, Inventory Management, and Purchasing and Procurement.
These certificates are designed to prepare you for an exciting career in these fields and help you get promoted at a faster pace. Be one of the first 15 students to enroll, and you will get a class for free.
Here are five reasons why you should give these certificates a look.
