 CILTI recognises the important role of education as the key to increased professionalism within the logistics, transport and supply chain industries. Its suite of education and training courses include the following:
 Certificate in Logistics

of their first year, students are awarded an Advanced Certificate in Logistics & Supply Chain Management
– and receive their Diploma at the end of year two.
