Students increase their knowledge of daily work practices including safety, equipment use, quality control, communication, teamwork, good workplace conduct, and familiarity with supply chain computer systems. Successful students will also demonstrate an understanding of the various roles in the global supply chain logistics life cycle.

Career Options

This course empowers students to deepen their knowledge and expertise in logistics so that they can start or advance a career in the industry. This is the first level of certification developed by industry experts in 2008.

Class Details

Ivy Tech students who are pursuing one of the Supply Chain Management associate degrees or certificate programs can earn the MSSC CLA as part of their coursework by taking LOG 127. They will need to take an assessment to successfully obtain the certification.

Ivy Tech skills training classes do not earn you college credit on their own, but they may crosswalk into Ivy Tech's academic degree programs should you decide to pursue that route in the future. Speak with your advisor to learn more about getting credit for prior learning.
