The Warehousing and Distribution Certificate program trains you for work in the Transportation, Warehousing and Logistics (TWL) industry.

The Workforce Boards of Metropolitan Chicago cite the TWL industry as the fifth largest employment sector in the region, and the sector continues to grow. The industry is worth $8 billion to the Chicago region, employs over 120,000 people, and maintains a payroll in excess of $3.2 billion.

Trained, career-oriented employees who can grow with the industry are the most marketable. MCC helps prepare you for entry-level warehousing opportunities—including order fillers, forklift operators, and shipping and receiving clerks—as well as for technical roles. You'll also benefit from the program if you're looking to move into a supervisory or management role.
