The CCLP® program of study compresses decades of logistics knowledge into a professional development program that can be completed in as little as 18 months. Our suite of 5 progressive, interlocking courses is designed to provide breadth and depth of knowledge to complement on-the job learning and deliver tangible, abilities-based operating outcomes. Our use of case-based learning, formal reports, and group discussion has the added value of containing potentially costly errors to the ‘classroom.’ This means employees accelerate what they’re learning while working for your business, but are also able to examine new strategies and ideas in-class, where your business won’t be exposed to risk.

Formal education programs can accelerate corporate learning and deliver critical outcomes for business

Many corporate leaders agree that a company’s human capital is its greatest asset, and some experts even go so far as saying that hiring the right people is the FIRST priority for building a great organization.

This is critical in the supply chain logistics discipline where the talent pool is already shallow. And with the majority of employees aged 40-59,1 the sector is set to face an unprecedented HR crises as talent retires.  needs to adopt “Develop-able Fit”,2 which is an HR strategy that’s much like athlete drafts that bid for the “best available person” who are later taught the specific skills they’ll need. This is especially relevant for the supply chain logistics sector where we must address our widening human resources gaps quickly.

To support this, experts are calling for the adoption of more formal corporate training to quickly develop skilled workforces. 

Students from a range of seniority and experience report very high workplace utility, even from the first course

Thousands of progressive companies on the shipper, carrier, and ancillary sides of business trust CITT to accelerate their people’s learning curves, whether they’re starting out in their careers or are professionals with over a decade of experience. And over 80% of them say they can apply learning from Transportation Systems, our first course, in their daily work, while nearly 90% of course grads from an advanced course, such as Logistics Decision Modelling, recommend it to their colleagues. So, CITT’s student can return your investment rapidly while CITT-Certified Logistics Professionals have a more complete mix of knowledge, critical decision-making skills, and experience to drive corporate and operating performance.

Students gain many relevant, tangible abilities and skills to complement theory

The CITT program of study is focussed on abilities-based outcomes, which are clear statements about what the student will be able to result of integrating the knowledge, skills, and attitudes they gain in a course. That means when you hire or train a CCLP, you’ll know exactly what they’ll be able to do for your company. For example,

Students of Transportation Systems will be able to:

  • Capitalize on the comparative efficiencies of various modes of transportation (rail, road, etc) and the procedures required for each.
  • Optimize the use of specialized intermediaries (custom brokers, customs brokers, freight forwards) and how to evaluate the cost and quality and learn ways to minimize time coordinating them
  • Reduce or avoid personal and corporate exposure to fines, seizures of goods, environmental damage, and criminal charges by recognizing safety standards and transportation legislation.
  • And more.

And students of Logistics Decision Modelling will be able to:

  • Analyze their business, modelling and evaluating “what if” scenarios on everything from inventory control and capital budgeting, using best practice techniques.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of inventory control as a major corporate concern by learning how to determine the costs of holding inventory as well as the costs of holding inventory as well as the costs associate with stock outs, economic order quantity, and safety stock
