Logistics Certifications

MSSCThe Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) credentialing system leading to a CLT covers core competency areas, as defined by MSSC’s industry-led, nationally validated skills standards for higher skilled, frontline material handling workers across all supply chain facilities: factories, warehouses, distribution centers and transporters. Individuals are assessed for two credentials: the foundational-level Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) certificate and mid-level Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) Certification.

NOTES: CLA is a prerequisite for CLT. MSSC strongly recommends that individuals be at an 8th-grade math and 10th-grade reading level before taking our Courses.

Participants MUST register and pay for both CLA and CLT classes together no later than 2 business days prior to class start date.
