Lee College's logistics certificates/associate degree provides students with key functional knowledge in the field and includes business management supervision; managing activities associated with traffic, transportation, inventory management, warehousing, packaging, order processing, and materials handling; and physical distribution and supply chain management. Two industry certifications — Certified Logistics Associate and Certified Logistics Technician — can be completed in Lee College's logistics certificates/degree. 

If you have ever had your computer hacked or if you know someone who has been hacked, you understand the increased focus on cybersecurity.
