SCARBOROUGH, Ont. – Centennial College has launched a new transportation management program that will be delivered exclusively on the Web through eCollege.com.

The program has been designed specifically for those in the transportation industry who want to expand their capabilities but are too busy to attend formal classes. For its part, eCollege.com has given Centennial College a US $180,000 grant to defer the costs to develop the on-line curriculum.

The program will cover the planning and implementing of raw material moves, in-process inventory, finished goods, services and other information from the point of origin to the consumer.

“This program is the first comprehensive online transportation management program in Canada,” says Bill Summers,” vice-president, academic. “Our students will gain insight from our transportation and business faculty, as well as from industry experts.”

“This program makes it possible for people to achieve their higher education goals, while at the same time fulfilling their job responsibilities,” says Rob Helmick, president and CEO of eCollege.com. His Denver, Co.-based company develops the technical framework that lets educational institutions offer on-line campuses.

This is the first such partnership between eCollege.com and an Ontario college.
