Course Overview

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 International Certificate follows on from the general knowledge gained in the CILT 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) for development as an in-house course, but then with the option for employees to move forward at a later date to ‘top up’ to certificate level. Note that any certification awarded on a modular basis will clearly state that the award only relates to the specific module and not to the whole qualification.

Course Outline

Mandatory Units
1. Business Theory (CERT-M1)
The role of management can be a very diverse and multi-disciplined practice that requires talented individuals to analyse, control and manage a multitude of operations and departments.
A range of management skills is required – whether course participants are working in a large international organisation or as a sole trader managing their own workload, diary and commercial aspects. In either arena, the art of the manager is to ensure maximum return on the operation from efficiency to finances.
Within this module a range of management disciplines from marketing and information flow to business planning and commercial skills are examined.
2. Business Application (CERT-M2)
Irrespective of the organisation, the arena of business or the tasks undertaken, management requires a group of individuals to work together with one objective: to achieve the targets, goals and aims defined by the organisation whilst adhering to its mission. Essentially, management involves a number of key factors, namely controlling, directing, leading, planning and staffing an organisation in mind of achieving a pre-set goal or several goals. Notably, for the purpose of this guide, an organisation in this context is defined as a group of one or more individuals or bodies.
Optional/Elective Units
Warehousing (CERT-O1)
Warehousing is accepted today as a critical component of logistics and supply chain operations. Warehouses have transformed from a mere storage place for goods to become complex operations that continue to add value to supply chain and give competitive advantages to organisations. This unit is designed in such a way so as to provide students with the knowledge and understanding of warehousing, and to thereby deliver the skills required by an aspiring Warehouse Manager to operate effectively. The unit covers all of the key areas of warehousing operations and the key activities involved in each area.
Inventory (CERT-O2)
The Inventory module is a stand-alone unit that focuses specifically on three areas:
→ Managing Inventory;
→ Controlling Stock;
→ Managing Performance.
Passenger Transport Operations (CERT-O3)
This element seeks to identify how transport has become an integrated part of society, and in all aspects, essential to how our modern society functions. Recent events such as flooding or terrorist incidents have demonstrated that disruption to transportation systems can cause immediate and long lasting impacts especially in today’s global supply chains. Whether it is an accident within the system, external weather or natural events that disrupt the way the system can function, or intentional disruption such as a strike by the workforce or an attack on the network, our reliance on transportation systems is obvious. People cannot get to work or education, visit hospitals, childcare becomes difficult, and food cannot be transported to retail shops. Such dependencies are explored and in addition why we rely so heavily on transportation systems, how transport constantly evolves to meet the ever changing demands of modern society
Procurement (CERT-O4)
Procurement is a key strategic element in any supply chain process. A Supply Chain comprises all activities associated with the flow and transformation of goods, from raw materials stage through to the final consumer, and so it is a sequence of events intended to satisfy a customer or end user. It is made up of various elements, including manufacturing, distribution, transport, warehousing, inventory control, materials handling, and procurement.
Freight Transport Operations (CERT-O5)
This unit has been to aid understanding of freight transport operations globally. It covers all the major modes of transport used to move goods both as a standalone operation and as part of modern supply chains.
The unit comprises of three main components:
→ Freight Transport Role, Structure and the Environment;
→ Freight Transport Planning and Demand;
→ Freight Transport Regulation, Control and Business.
Supply Chain Operations (CERT-O7)
This module covers the key concepts surrounding supply chain operations and focuses on four main components:
→ Fundamentals of a Supply Chain;
→ The Supply Chain Environment;
→ Operation of a Supply Chain;
→ Supply Chain Performance.
Transport Planning (CERT-O8)
This unit is designed to provide an overview of the various aspects of transport planning. It seeks to give a flavour of the different elements of transport planning, showing the part played by each in the making, planning, development and implementation of transport projects, together with relevant issues concerning travel behaviour, modal choice and accessibility. In particular, the unit aims to broaden the candidate’s thinking respect of the various factors that have to be balanced in transport decision making: economic prosperity, environment, congestion, social inclusion and accessibility, equity, choice, safety.
Students are encouraged to study the given, but to link them into their local/ national and regional environment so that practices undertaken locally can be seen in the wider global context. However many transport planning practices / measures have universal applicability.
Green Logistics (CERT-O9)
This Unit is specifically designed to provide information and to help understanding of green and sustainable logistics and supply chain management. It covers the environmental impact of logistics and supply chain operations, modal considerations, energy efficiency, future trends and strategies, the management of change aimed at improving sustainability and the required performance measures and performance monitoring that will be required in order to bring about such desired and planned changes.
It comprises of three components:
1. Green and Sustainable Logistics;
2. Sustainable Logistics and Supply ChainOperations Today and in the Future;
3. Green Logistics Management, Performance and Monitoring.

    We have been working with LEORON for the past two years and will be working with them again this upcoming year. The programs they delivered were fruitful and exciting and our organization has received positive feedback from the participants. What our organization aims to do is to provide at no cost training for all the private sector employees so that they may benefit from our offered programs in Innovation and Professional development. Leoron has helped us achieve this goal. We look forward to continuing this service and wish them the best of luck. Regards,
