How logistics professionals can stay educated

By Melissa Gallardo

Whether you’re an industry veteran looking to keep your skills current or someone seeking a new career in logistics, there are classes everywhere and for every level.

While at the NCBFAA Annual Conference, we learned about their Educational Institute which offers online accreditations that can be earned for the designation of Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) or Certified Export Specialist (CES).

If you’re just getting underway, there are community colleges offering two and four year degrees in supply chain management and logistics.

We even suggest searching the internet for the local air cargo and Customs broker and freight forwarder trade associations operating in most major ports around the United States. These organizations offer webinars and seminars (many of which count towards the NCBFAA continuing education credits) on topics impacting the industry today.

Here are just a few examples of the associations in Los AngelesAtlantaChicago and New York.

At BCS, we work with companies and recruits nationwide and know the resources that are available both online and in person. If you are a candidate looking to change companies or seeking advice on educational opportunities in your market, send us your resume today.
