Maritime Logistics involves planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient flow and storage of goods, services, and related information from the point of origin to the point of consumption to meet customer requirements in maritime and business environments.

This program is open to both military and civilian students. Each course in the Maritime Logistics Certification Program at TCC is 40 hours in length (4.0 Continuing Education Units) and can be taken in any order except for Supply Chain Management which should be taken first, and Maritime Logistics Afloat and Ashore which should be taken as the final course in the certification process.


The program is composed of five courses:

  • Supply Chain Management
  • Purchasing and Materials Management
  • Distribution and Transportation Management
  • Inventory and Warehouse Management
