The Talent Development Center (TDC) for TLD in New Jersey has been established at Union County College through a grant from the NJDOLWD.
This growing industry sector requires a highly productive workforce. New Jersey residents require training and industry-valued credentials as steps leading to economic opportunity and successful careers. The TDC creates opportunities for both.
Employer-driven partnerships are the key ingredient to the success of this endeavor. How does this work? Three ways.
· Employers are invited to partner with the TLD TDC for training of employees at entry-level or mid-career. Classes are offered at our campus or at employer facilities, whichever is easier.
· The TLD TDC is recruiting and training displaced and unemployed workers seeking to enter this industry to start or to continue careers. This pool of trainees is an excellent source for recruiters seeking to fill jobs at the entry or middle management level.
· Employed individuals may enroll in classes at the TLD TDC with employer sponsorship to enhance career skills and knowledge.
· The center offers opportunities to obtain industry recognized SCMPro certification from the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) through the LINCS Supply Chain Management Curriculum.
Training in Supply Chain Management, Project Management, CDL-A license, Forklift Operation, OSHA and other knowledge and skills specific to the Transportation, Logistics and Distribution sector is available at the TLD TDC.
Individuals and businesses are encouraged to contact the TDC for information about current training offerings. Grant requirements and eligibility criteria for participation apply. Contact the TLD Talent Development Center:
