Many technological advances continue to take place in the business world and Logistics & Warehouse Management students are expected to meet the new challenges. The computer plays an integral part in the make-up of any warehouse, retail store, trucking company or any individual business owner. All students will be provided the opportunity to use the computer for receiving merchandise, updating stock record cards and maintaining an ongoing inventory of every product that is received within the warehouse. The Logistics & Warehouse Management program serves as a live distribution center for Central Westmoreland Career and Technology Center, as everything that is ordered, with the exception of perishable food products, is received by the warehousing students. Today's employers demand highly skilled workers. In the Logistics & Warehouse Management program students receive training that will prepare them for skills necessary for entry into the work force. Students learn to use a UPS track pod scanning inbound merchandise as well as delivery of items. Students also learn to use computer and the Excel program in preparing letters for customer service work or typing bills associated with outstanding invoices. The program can be taken over a period of two, three, or four years. Students will receive a certificate upon completion of three or more years. The curriculum is quite extensive and completely competency-based. This system allows any student to progress at his or her own rate without fear of competing with other students.
