Posted by AMS / Thursday, February 1, 2018
AMS Fulfillment, in partnership with Employee Training Institute (ETI) and College of the Canyons (COC), has begun its first classroom training in their groundbreaking Nationally Certified Logistics Apprentice Program. This new apprenticeship, in Logistics and Warehousing, was announced in November of 2016 and began in early 2017.
The program requires 2,200 work hours in four areas of fulfillment (shipping, receiving, inventory and fulfillment) and 160 hours of class time. Current students are 800 hours into their apprenticeship, and beginning their classroom experience with an ETI program called, “New World of Work – 21st Century Skills”.
The ETI training program prepares students for success in the workplace with instruction on adaptability, analysis/solution mindset, collaboration, communication, digital fluency, entrepreneurial mindset, empathy, resilience, self-awareness, and social awareness. These are considered a core set of skills indispensable to employers in the 21st century.
Thumb’s Up to the following apprentices in training as they begin their classroom experience: Natalia Andrade G., Jamie B., Preston F., Brenda F., Cristy G., Lucas H., Michael L., Morgan M., Russell M., Rosalio M., Melanie M., Erick R., Jesse R., Ana R., Norma S., Vanessa H., Charles H., Scott L., Rodolfo R., Leonard L. The following AMS employees have joined the class: Ana R., Kathy B., Oscar V., Terrance N., Beatriz R., Crystal H.

Also of note, AMS will be kicking off a new Warehouse Management System Training Program early in February. The first round of this program is primarily attended by apprentices, but will be offered 3-4 times in 2018. The training teaches employees how to leverage AMS technology solutions in the efficient and accurate handling of our clients’ valuable shipments, and inventory management.
