The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) qualifications available at MET’S Polytechnic College

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.
