The qualification consists of 6 modules all of which have to be studied and completed by students who will sit an examination in each module.

 

Advanced Diploma in Logistics & Transport Management

This advanced course is primarily aimed at developing strategic decision making skills in logistics and transportation. Modern companies in their efforts to cope with an ever changing and challenging environment use two key processes to build their future. The first is strategic planning which enables top management to determine business direction ot wants to acheive. The second is the logistics and transportation plannig which enables the company to proceed in a systematic way to identify and turn specific opportunities into profitable opportunities.

In the present marketing environment characterised by unparalleled technological developments and intensifying competition, there are no simple correct solutions to logistics and transportation problems. This course is therefore aimed at presenting a set of normative procedures, which may be utilised to generate a varied range of innovative strategic options and a basis to choose a rational programme for action. For the purpose of this course, understanding the process of identification is more important than any particular solution.

The focus of this course is on strategic logistics and transportation management. Issues in this area will be explored in depth and at a relatively advanced level. The student is expected to fully understand the conceptual and theoretical basis of strategy and demonstrate competence in actually utilising that understanding in the applied context.

Students who are successful in their Diploma studies, or other exempting qualification, meet the knowledge standards for Chartered Membership (CMILT) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, subject to a minimum of 5 years experience in the logistics and transport sector, of which 2 must be at a senior management level. The qualification consists of 6 modules all of which have to be studied and completed by students who will sit an examination in each module (exception being individuals with exemption qualification).

Professional Development Assessment Service

The Institute offers experienced practitioners the opportunity to demonstrate their competence against the CILT Qualifications Standards, based on accreditation of prior learning and/or assessment and verification in the workplace. This contributes to individual personal development opportunities and enables individuals to gain a professional qualification from the Institute.

What is the PDA Service?
The Institute's Professional Development Assessment Service (PDAS) offers experienced practitioners the opportunity to demonstrate their competence against the Institute's logistics qualifications and standards, based on accreditation of prior learning and/or assessment and verification in the workplace.

PDAS is operated on behalf of the Institute by an approved professional assessment centre. Its personnel are well-known to the Institute.

Why is PDAS important to me?
It contributes to individual personal development opportunities and enables individuals to gain a professional qualification from the Institute, plus accreditation for existing skills and knowledge.

Who is it for?
It is for Candidates who:

Are not members of the Institute;
Apply for membership but have no formal recognition for existing knowledge and/or skills;
Have professional experience in logistics & transport, but have not gained qualifications; and
Can demonstrate a track record of learning through attendance on accredited courses

How does PDAS work?
When candidates enrol they are sent Introductory Notes and, following registration, Guidance Materials, to enable them to familiarize themselves with the requirements of the PDAS.

An Assessor is allocated to the candidate and the Assessor contacts them directly to arrange the Initial Competence Analysis (ICA) - see below.

On completion of the ICA, an Induction will take place outlining the assessment process and what is required of the candidate in preparing for assessment.

What is the Initial Competence Analysis (ICA)?
ICA consists of four stages:

Stage 1 - the Self-Assessment Questionnaire that sets out a range of task-based competence criteria for logistics activities matched to the criteria within CILT (UK) qualifications. The candidate completes the questionnaire and a comparison of the responses against benchmark criteria establishes a skills profile and identifies any performance gaps.

Stage 2 - Assessor Moderation that highlights any inconsistencies or apparent misinterpretations, prior to a one-to-one meeting between the Assessor and the candidate.

Stage 3 - the ICA Report which shows:

Overall level of competence;
Areas where evidence can be generated;
Areas where prior learning and experience is indicated;
Any activities not currently undertaken; and
List of competence shortfalls/gaps

Stage 4 - a Personal Development plan is produced identifying:

Proposals for dealing with shortfalls/gaps, including identification of solutions to give the individual the opportunity to get the necessary evidence; and
Training and development needs with identification of the options for meeting them.
