Logistics and Warehousing Certificate

Program Description

The logistics and warehousing certificate program will fill various training needs for Black Hawk College students. On one level, it can be taken by displaced workers or recent high school graduates who want to enter the workforce quickly. That population can simply follow a four-course plan to earn a 10 credit hour certificate alone or students may enroll as part of a larger 33 credit hour certificate program for broader business knowledge and potential for advancement.

The two logistic certificates will prepare graduates for a range of positions within the general career area: warehouse material mover and handler or supervisor, dispatcher, customer service representative, buyer, data entry clerk, allocations specialist, terminal or dock supervisor, delivery scheduling clerk or overage, shortage and damage clerk, quality control inspector, loader, shipper, receiving or return good clerk, supply technician, picker and packer, or fork lift worker.


Gainful Employment

Gainful employment is one important measure that students and parents should pay attention to as they examine colleges and programs. All non-degree programs must be designed to lead to gainful employment in a recognized occupation in order to be deemed eligible for federal student aid. These programs are generally less than 2 years in length and result in a certificate.
