Piedmont Community College’s (PCC) High School Career and College Promise Coach McKenzie Hedrick hosted a Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) Day in late November at Bartlett Yancey High School. During the event local industry representatives showcased their products and working environment to students. In addition, participants learned the benefits of enrolling in PCC’s Certified Logistics Technician training while in high school. The main message from employers: we are hiring people with skills learned from the CLT training program.

GKN Driveline, Spuntech Industries, Polywood, and Essel Propack representatives sat on a panel, introducing themselves and their companies and answering a variety of student questions. Industry tables were also available with actual products. This segment of the event allowed Bartlett Yancey High School students to gain a more in depth view of each organization and their products in a hands-on manner.

Approximately 60 students participated in the activity, learning about local industries and what they are looking for in future employees. Students also had the opportunity to learn about programs available at PCC that can help them transition into a position at one of the manufacturing organizations.

In fact, the Certified Logistics Technician Pathway is one of the newest Workforce pathways available to high school students and the training is free. Through this program, students have the potential to earn three nationally recognized credentials in only one semester:
• Certified Logistics Associate
• Certified Logistics Technician
• OSHA-Forklift
The free pathway also includes plant tours, field trips, and Working Smart (soft skills) instruction.
