For the first time, Bakersfield College students have the opportunity to take a warehouse management business administration course.
Starting next Tuesday, the course will focus on maximizing value in the modern warehouse, supply chain relationships, management systems and safety.
BC faculty member who wrote the course, Gary Blackburn, says Kern County is extremely important in the distribution world.
“The reason this class is so important is because it is the third largest industry in Kern County after agriculture and oil distribution and people have seen all of the distribution centers rise in recent years and Bakersfield halfway between Northern is California and Southern California’s 40 million consumers, “Blackburn said.
Blackburn said BC is not stopping on the camp course. There will be three more logistics classes. Class two will be Operations Management and Lean Principles. Class three will be supply chain management as well as purchasing and contracting. And class four will be transport management.
If you are interested in the course or a future course, you can apply or enroll on the Bakersfield College website.
