International Certificate in Logistics and Transport

CILT Level 3 is designed to support professionals moving into, or who are already within supervisory or team leader roles but require training and development.

The CILT International Certificate in Logistics and Transport is a free-standing qualification, designed to provide a sound foundation for a career within the transport and supply chain fields and should provide potential supervisors and first-line managers with a complete set of management skills.

The CILT Level 3 International Certificate follows on from the general knowledge gained in the CILT Level 2 International Introductory Certificate and provides more in-depth information on the core business subjects and specialist areas.

The modules offered as part of this qualification can also be offered as stand-alone units, giving both students and employers maximum flexibility. This route may specifically appeal to employers who wish to target a very specific topic area (e.g. Port Logistics, Warehousing)
