The San Diego Center for International Trade Development (CITD) and Deputy Sector Navigator for Global Trade (DSNGT) was awarded a grant from the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office Division of Economic and Workforce Development to develop an apprenticeship program for the Cargo and Freight Agent occupation. The program will combine paid on-the-job training with classroom lessons. Apprentices in the program will take courses from Southwestern College’s International Logistics and Transportation Program while working full-time. Additionally, apprentices will have the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications in supply chain management through the CITD/DSNGT’s SCPro Fundamentals certification program, which is backed by the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP).
