Pathways at Nashville State Community College (NSCC)
The NSCC Pathway provides opportunities for juniors and seniors in high school to earn certifications in a college pathway while still attending a traditional CMCSS high school. Students will attend NSCC pathway classes on the campus of CHS or NWHS from 7:30-8:25 and then, attend core classes at their zoned high school for the remainder of the school day. School system transportation will not be provided for students enrolled in NSCC Pathway classes.
The following program is offered at Pathways at NSCC:
Logistics Technical Certifications
This program prepares students for employment in the supply chain management field, including current laws and ethical issues related to large scale purchase, transport and storage of materials. In addition to the Logistics Technical Certificate, students will also have the opportunity to earn the Transportation Technical Certificate and the Supply Chain Technical Certificate.
About Careers in the Field of Logistics
Careers in logistics involve planning for the shipment or movement of items from one place to another. Experts in this field must be innovative and able to brainstorm solutions for ways to transport items, quickly, safely, and in the least expensive way possible between the company or person who has an item to the company or person who needs an item. Experts in this field coordinate the movement of everything from trucks and trains, to boats, planes, and drones or any other method of moving something from one place to another.
The NSCC Pathway: Logistics will prepare students for employment in the supply chain management field, including current laws and ethical issues related to large scale purchase, transport and storage of materials. In addition to the Logistics Technical Certificate earned at the end of student’s junior year, students who continue with the program as seniors will also have the opportunity to earn the Transportation Technical Certificate and the Supply Chain Technical Certificate. Any of these certificates could afford students the opportunity to walk directly out of high school and into a career in the field of logistics.
