About CILT training

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) offers internationally recognised qualifications in transport and logistics, leading you into Chartered Membership.

CILT Why learn with us with a group of people learning together

Learning with CILT gives transport and logistics students a strong headstart in their career development. With 5 levels of qualifications available from school-leaver to graduate level, learning with CILT can take place flexibly and at your own pace. Our qualifications are recognised globally, and will enable you to progress your career as you work your way through each level.

As a student, learning with the CILT means that you:-

  • Will be learning about the most up-to-date transport and logistics techniques
  • Will be able to choose units of study that best match your career
  • Will be able to use our qualifications to progress through CILT membership levels
  • Will be able to use your qualification internationally to show your level of knowledge and competence

You can access the full range of CILT courses through taught, distance learning and e-learning formats, and there are modular options available too. For employers, this is an ideal way to ensure your staff are well trained in the foundations of supply chain, logistics and transport, using the course options that best match the needs of your business.

Our qualifications have been developed rigorously to match with the overall standards needed to develop logistics and transport professionals across the world. Each qualification has been assessed against key knowledge areas and competencies that need to be demonstrated, and undergo regular review from a team of academics and practitioners.

Our qualifications help you satisfy the educational requirements for our Chartered Membership and other Membership levels.

Where our qualifications need to be recognised by a government agency, we are always happy to provide the necessary evidence to show how the qualification has been developed and the standards met.

Global recognition

CILT International qualifications are recognized globally across all our CILT countries – and beyond. Our qualifications are developed to the highest standards, offering valuable professional recognition wherever you are in the world.

The flexibility of our qualification structure means you can study in one country, and then move on to develop your career at in a different location, building on what you have learnt and moving up the qualification ladder. And of course you can always opt for Distance Learning if this suits your learning needs.

So that our courses are relevant to industry and government in every CILT country, we make sure the course content and structure meets any National Qualification Framework requirements and standards, looking for the best solution for that country. This means that you gain a qualification that is internationally transferable – but you can also use this for professional recognition and career development.

To meet the needs of industry and to reflect the transport and logistics issues in your own country, our approved training providers tailor our courses to include localised case studies and examples. This means you are learning in an easy and relevant way whilst benefiting from our high education standards.

We are consistently building on our modular course structure, so that new units of study will be constantly developed to meet the needs of business and industry, responding to our global community.
