Certified Technician-Supply Chain Automation


The purpose of the MSSC Certified Technician-Supply Chain Automation (CT-SCA)™ program is to prepare technicians who install, operate, support, upgrade, and maintain the automated material handling equipment and systems which support the supply chain.

The CT-SCA program was developed through collaboration with the National Science Foundation-funded National Center for Supply Chain Automation (NCSCA), Material Handling Industry (MHI), Material Handling Equipment Distributors Association (MHEDA), Amatrol, and NOCTI Business Solutions.

Online Training & Certifications

The CT-SCA is comprised of three prestigious separate certificates:
