The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) qualifications available at Conarina Maritime Academy

International Diploma in Logistics and Transport

This course is designed to support professionals involved in planning logistics operations and those operating in supervisory or operational management roles. It is also ideal for graduates with non-business degrees moving into the logistics field.

As a Level 5 programme, this would be taught at the same level as Year 2 of a Bachelor’s degree, but is focussed on vocational rather than purely academic learning.

Candidates study four units (one mandatory and three electives/options) and are assessed via a written examination. Whilst the course can be delivered in a part-time manner over up to 18 months, most complete within a year. The course will be a blend of both taught material and independent study.

Successful completion of the CILT International Diploma together with a minimum of 3 years appropriate experience meets the eligibility criteria for membership upgrade from Student Member to Member (MILT) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.

International Advanced Diploma in Logistics and Transport

As a Level 6 qualification, this course is akin to the final year of a Bachelor’s degree and could therefore be used to gain access to post-graduate study at Master’s level should the candidate wish to explore this route.

This qualification is designed for those with strategic responsibilities (or those looking to move into these roles) within the logistics and transport industry. However, students without this experience will be considered on a case-by-case basis; training providers will work with them to ensure that they are able to access the course and apply their learning effectively.

Due to the operational level of this course, the Advanced Diploma is typically delivered in a part-time manner to accommodate both work and study and usually takes between 18 months to two years. The course will be a blend of both taught material and independent study.

There are five mandatory modules. The first four modules are assessed by written examination, with the final one being a written professional project rooted in research methods and methodology. Due to the advanced level of the qualification, it is not possible to take units in stand-alone format.

Successful completion of the International Advanced Diploma, together with a minimum of 5 years appropriate experience, meets the eligibility criteria for membership upgrade to Chartered Member (CMILT) of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport.
