The Skyline College Workforce Development Program and Goodwill Industries welcomed their second spring 2014 Skyline College Warehousing and Logistics cohort on March 31, 2014. Skyline College’s Business Division and Workforce Development partnership with Goodwill Industries awards certificates in Warehousing and Logistics to students wishing to reenter the workforce. For many of the Goodwill students, this is their first time entering a college environment.

As a result of the partnership, graduates are encouraged to enroll in the Career Advancement Academy. Students are currently enrolled in the Allied Health Bridge Program and the Entry Level Automotive Career Advancement Academies. The Career Advancement Academy (CAA) provides stackable certificates in Auto Entry Level Technician, Foundations in Early Childhood Education, Paralegal and Allied Health (EMT, Medical Office Administrator, and Sterile Processing).

For more information about joining or creating a Career Advancement Academy or the Goodwill Partnership, contact Soledad McCarthy, mccarthys@smccd.edu.
