LINCS Supply Chain Management (SCM) …where Skills + Credentials = Marketability!

The LINCS (Leveraging, Integrating, Networking, Coordinating Supplies) SCM (Supply Chain Management) Program at Union County College provides educational opportunities and job skills training to prepare participants for entry and middle level employment in the Supply Chain Management Industry.

Union County College is a member of a national consortium funded by a federal grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration. The grant’s goal is to provide training to qualified unemployed workers, displaced workers, the underemployed, and veterans to prepare them for active employment in the SCM industry.

What are the benefits of training?

Training and certifications can provide entry to a career. Short-term training programs are designed to provide workers with a competitive advantage in the labor market. Benefits of training include: increased job opportunities, new responsibilities, promotions or pay increases.

Why Supply Chain Management?

Nearly every business is a link in the supply chain and requires skilled workers at all levels with a clear understanding of how a supply chain works.

“Call it a problem of supply and demand. With global operations becoming more complex, companies in manufacturing, retail and technology…are scrambling to hire people with supply-chain expertise. But these experts are hard to come by.” (Wall Street Journal, 2013)
 
Union County College is located within the hub of NJ’s Transportation, Logistics and Distribution (TLD) industry. The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development has identified TLD as a key industry sector. In fact, more than 1 in every 10 jobs in New Jersey are found in the TLD business sector.
