Center for Global Workforce and Logistics Education

Our Mission

The Center for Global Workforce and Logistics Education is an economic catalyst to help promote global commerce and to meet job training needs in Mecklenburg County.

As the Charlotte region becomes an important hub of global commerce, the center will focus on information flow, material handling, production, packaging, inventory, transportation, warehousing and security. We will work to understand and anticipate the needs of business in collaboration with experts in the field.

The center offers courses and training aimed at jobs in logistics, transportation, warehousing, exporting and manufacturing. These courses are open to individuals and by custom design and delivery to employers in Mecklenburg County. Programs range in level of difficulty, length and format while providing either skills and competencies alone or in conjunction with credit-based degree and certificates.
