International Certificate in Logistics and Transport
The CILT Level 5: International Certificate in Logistics and Transport, certified by CILT International, is an excellent opportunity for companies to develop their staff and at the same time assist the companies with their skills development and employment equity targets on their BBBEE scorecard. Explains Harris: “The awarding of professional designations to employees will assist in enhancing employment equity levels of the employee from ‘Skilled technical and academically qualified workers’ to that of ‘Professionally qualified and experienced specialist’ level, thereby assisting companies with their Employment Equity Targets”.
The programme also provides for opportunities within the broader spectrum of the transport and logistics industry, accommodating sub-sectors such as warehousing and inventory, rail, freight forwarding, freight transport operations, passenger transport operations and general transport operations.
