The San Diego CITD 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. Sample job titles in this occupation include: Cargo Agent, Documentation Clerk, Freight Broker, Logistics Coordinator, and others.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Apprenticeship Program (SCLAP) is a State-approved program that combines 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. The grant awarded to the San Diego CITD covers the cost of taking these courses for apprentices, including books and materials. There are also incentives for employers that participate in the program.
