Warehouse Management

Posted on
This program will actively engage students in the process of receiving, storing, shipping, controlling and distributing products. Students will use conveyors, hand trucks, and carts to transport materials/supplies.
Students will work in the Forbes Road CTC Distribution Center using technology to scan and track products. This program will expose students to careers related to the movement of materials and products.
The partnership with First Book has allowed the Warehouse Management students to get valuable “real” work experience in both shipping and receiving while helping to get books into the hands of children across the country and Canada.
