The Warehousing Operations certification track provides the basics of warehousing operations, including distribution centers and fulfillment centers. Key elements of the track include the role of warehousing and distribution centers in the supply chain, and the other key functions of processing goods: receiving, movement, storage, picking, packing, and packaging. Other value-added processes, like cross-docking and kitting, are presented as they are routinely used in warehousing and distribution centers like Amazon and Walmart. Additionally, the Warehouse Management System (WMS) is presented as the back-bone that enables the warehouse to function effectively and efficiently.
Warehouses, fulfillment centers, and distribution centers have an ongoing need for personnel in a wide range of functions including material handlers, pickers, packers, forklift operators, and IT specialists for the WMS.
