Logistics, Transportation, and Supply Chain Technical Certificates


Program Office: 615-353-3400, Email: logistics@nscc.edu

The Logistics Technical Certificate, the Transportation Technical Certificate, and the Supply Chain Technical Certificate each prepare students for employment in the supply chain management field. Each certificate is designed to introduce logistics principles to students seeking first-time employment in supply chain management or for more experienced individuals desiring to expand their knowledge.

The Logistics concentration offers three sequentially progressive certificates that apply toward an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree in Business Management. Students have the option of taking only one course, completing one or more certificates, or progressing to the Business Management degree.

The Logistics concentration integrates Business Management with the latest Logistics information providing a comprehensive business-logistics educational foundation. Logistics courses cover topics such as supply chain management principles, warehousing and distribution, inventory control, traffic management, regulatory compliance, and various analytical tools.

The goals of each Technical Certificate are to:

  • Help students understand logistics functions and activities.
  • Equip students to apply current local, state, federal, and international laws to large scale transport and storage of materials.
  • Aid students’ understanding of analytical tools used in supply chain management.
  • Prepare students to identify and work with ethical/legal issues related to purchasing and transportation of goods and materials.
  • Help students demonstrate an awareness of the importance of customer satisfaction as a top priority.
