The Port of Long Beach Maritime Center of Excellence at Long Beach City College (LBCC) will host a free orientation session to educate the community about participation in its offerings, according to the college last week.

An orientation will be held Tuesday, April 9, from 10am to noon inside building LL, room LL-102, at the Pacific Coast Campus, 1305 E. Pacific Coast Hwy.

LBCC officials said the Port of Long Beach Maritime Center of Excellence is a new program that trains community members who are interested in the global logistics and supply chain industries. LBCC’s Workforce Development offers the short-term fee-based educational classes that target occupations in the global logistics and supply chain industries.

Training will prepare people for positions in:

• Dispatching for logistics
