Lethbridge’s Teamworks Career Centre is launching a brand new, no-cost employment program to help unemployed Albertans find full-time jobs in the supply chain sector.

The program also includes a partnership with the Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation (CITT) and the development of a first-of-its-kind Mirco-Credential.

Ryan Miller with Teamworks says this is a great 15 week program. “This new program is a tremendous opportunity for unemployed individuals of all ages and backgrounds to find employment in this valuable and growing sector. The program is also of significant benefit to many local employers who require supply chain related skills to grow their business.”

Those who complete the occupational training, will receive an industry recognized Micro-Credential in transportation and logistics.

CITT President and CEO, Pina Melchionna, says there are public misconceptions about what supply chain involves and that this first of its kind Micro-Credential in Transportation & Logistics will help create better awareness on the topic. “Supply chain logistics as a discipline is seeing a surge in interest as businesses like Amazon and Apple have made it a key competitive differentiator. But the profession of supply chain management is still not well-understood by the general public. We’re thrilled that this program will provide both an entry into the field for those excited about the career path and a means of educating the public on such a vital component of the business world.”

Session start dates are September 30, 2019, January 27, 2020 and March 30, 2020. Individuals who would like more information on this new employment program can contact Teamworks Career Centre at (403) 382-3770 or find more information at Teamworks Training.
