- Business Management Abilities:
If you already have a university or college degree or diploma in a business discipline, you can simply apply for advanced standing towards the CCLP designation to meet this requirement.
No degree or diploma? No problem. CITT offers world-class business education in partnership with the University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. Simply take 5 business management courses (choose from 9 available courses) to meet this requirement to earn your CCLP designation. Individual course exemptions are also available if you've already taken some business courses which covered similar content.
For senior-level executives (director and above) with 10+ years experience, there's also a Senior Executive Fast Track.
- Real-World Experience:
In order to hold the CCLP designation, you need to have at least 5 years of experience working in a supply chain or logistics function. This experience can be in Canada or international, working for supply chain sector organizations or in a supply chain or logistics function in another industry, at any level of seniority. The 5 years do not need to be consecutive, but you do need to have logged 5 years of practical experience in total.
If you do not yet have 5 years industry experience, you can still get started taking CITT courses and work towards earning the CCLP designation. Industry work experience can be logged at the same time. And if you happen to complete the academic requirements to earn your designation while you're still working towards your 5 years of experience, you can apply to become an Articling Participant, and remain part of the CITT community with access to most student- and members-only resources (like the career centre and free webinars) until you've got your full 5 years and can apply for full certification.
- Additional Requirements for Certification:
Once you have met the academic and experience requirements, you will be eligible to apply for your CCLP® designation. In order to hold the designation, you will need to:
