Most people are familiar with plumbers who come to their home to unclog a drain or install an appliance. In addition to these activities, however, plumbers install, maintain, and repair many different types of pipe systems. For example, some systems move water to a municipal water treatment plant and then to residential, commercial, and public buildings. Other systems dispose of waste, provide gas to stoves and furnaces, or supply air conditioning. Pipe systems in power plants carry the steam that powers huge turbines. Pipes also are used in manufacturing plants, such as wineries, to move material through production processes. This program utilizes NCCER’s four-level curriculum that covers topics such as Plumbing Tools, Types of Valves, and Potable Water Treatment.

Global logistics and supply chain management connect internal functions of an organization with other institutions around the globe. It is vital to understand the roles of logistics and supply chain management in a global economy where individuals and organizations have access to markets across the world. This field requires critical thinking and problem-solving skills to coordinate the movement of goods and services that may be separated by a few feet or thousands of miles. In an industry always striving for optimization, decision-making skills are paramount. The AC Global Logistics & Supply Chain Management (GLSCM) program enables students to practice innovative and critical thinking skills as they develop solutions to authentic logistics problems businesses regularly face both locally and internationally. Students will learn the complexities businesses deal with in securing raw materials from distant locations, moving them across multiple borders, receiving them in various ports, transporting them to warehouses accessible through multiple modes of transportation, storing them efficiently or employing the just-in-time model, and then distributing them to customers through networks that properly balance transit time with cost. Logistics is indispensable for the U.S. economy, constituting nearly 9 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP).
