A way to further your material handling education is now at your fingertips, thanks to a series of selfpaced e-lessons offered by the Material Handling Institute and the Material Handling Industry of America. The free e-lessons take between 20 and 45 minutes to complete, which makes them suitable for lunchtime or break-time study.
Three new sessions have recently been added to the course offerings: pallet picking, case picking, and broken case/each picking. These slide presentations introduce users to various picking concepts and cover advantages and disadvantages of different techniques and technologies. The presentations include a self-testing section, contact information for further questions, and a list of additional resources.
Students can use the lessons on the Web site to prepare for the national certification exam administered by the Material Handling Institute. For more information or to view other course offerings, visit www.mhia.org.
