Open Your Mind with a CILT Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
If you are considering a career in the disciplines of logistics and supply chain management or considering up-skilling your qualifications portfolio to enhance your career strategy, I strongly recommend participating on the CILT Diploma in Logistics and Supply Chain Management two-year course programme. Before I committed to participate on the course, I had a basic understanding of the disciplines of logistics and supply chain management. The lecture sessions are interactive and facilitated in a relaxed environment over two Saturdays per month enabling participants to plan and facilitate necessary changes to family or career commitments. The course covers eight modules providing participants with an appreciation and comprehension of the following imperative fundamental elements of logistics and supply chain management.
• Logistics Management for Superior Customer Service
• Warehousing and Distribution
• Transport and the Supply Chain
• Management and Supervisory Skills
• Financial Management
• Strategy, Logistics and Marketing
• Operations Management
• Human Resource Management
Amazingly, as we explored each module, we quickly realised that what we were learning in the lecture sessions was all about the fundamental elements of our jobs irrespective of our industry background. By sacrificing the Gaelic games, Six Nations, and Premier League on Saturday’s, it enabled us as a team to top our own table, reap the rewards, achieve industry-wide recognised qualifications in logistics and supply chain management. On reflection, as a past graduate of the diploma course, what I learned over those two short years is priceless and one of the best investments I have made in my education and career path. The course has been of immense benefit to me throughout my career in the newspaper, road haulage, and recruitment industries. The course lecturers and team at CILT have inspired me to believe in myself, continuously improve, and pursue additional logistics and supply chain management related qualifications The course also gave me a great appreciation that logistics and supply chain management plays a pivotal fundamental role in how organisations can achieve sustained profitable growth and competitive advantage by having the right qualified people on their teams.
