CRANFORD – Union County College is offering several training classes that are available free of charge to qualifying employees. The Continuing Education Department also has a one-night class on how to sell things on eBay.
Introduction to Logistics
Employees in transportation, logistics and distribution may attend an industry-specific training program, Introduction to Logistics, at Union County College, free of charge through a grant from the New Jersey Business and Industry Association. This is a 48-hour comprehensive learning experience.
The class will run two evenings per week, Mondays and Wednesdays from Oct. 21 through Dec. 9 at the Kellogg Building at 40 W. Jersey Street, Elizabeth, NJ 07202 at 6:30 p.m.
Employers are encouraged to offer these classes to their employees as opportunities for professional development. Content includes world geography, industry-specific documentation such as airway bills, export forms and commercial invoices as well as MRP and TMS software. Training in communication skills, customer service, team building and logistics vocabulary is also included. Seating is limited to 16. Registration is required.
Former students of the program say, “The topics were informative and relevant, with a lot of real life applications,” and “As we work in a support industry to a small section of the logistics chain, seeing the bigger picture is important. We now feel we are more knowledgeable business partners to our clients.”
Microsoft Office Instruction
A mobile computer lab allows the Industry-Business Institute at Union County College to bring workshops in MS Office applications to your place of business. A minimum of ten participants who are employed for 20 hours per week or more is required.
“These skills are valuable to all employees,” says Lisa Hiscano, Director of the Industry-Business Institute. “Large Companies, local chambers of commerce, industry associations and neighborhood business associations have used this program with great results.”
IBI also offers these on an open enrollment basis at the college’s campuses in Cranford and Elizabeth, also at no charge. To attend, you must be employed a minimum of 20 hours per week and your employer must complete registration for any employees to attend. Registration information is available at www.ucc.edu/go/ibi.
