Professional Certification/Licenses Grant Program
Purpose: Professional certification is the process by which a person proves that he/she has the knowledge, experience and skills to perform a specific job and the tasks in which they have been trained. Having a professional certification also shows potential employers that you are committed to your profession and are well-trained. It gives them confidence in your abilities and knowledge. Certification makes you more valuable to employers, so you can expect to earn more than someone without certification. Certification also offers advancement opportunities and management opportunities. You will have a competitive advantage over candidates without certificates, earn higher wages and receive tuition reimbursement for continuing education.
Examples of some of the professional logistics certificates that are available for Supply Officers and enlisted supply personnel are: Supply Chain Professional (CSCP); Foodservice Management Professional (FMP); Certified Professional Contract Manager; and Financial Management Certification.
Depending on the professional logistics field that you want to be employed in you might need a professional certification to boost your hiring chances.
