Advanced Academic Standing towards the CCLP designation

Industry's most valued and widely-held professional designation may be closer than you think. If you have a degree or diploma in business from a university or college (like a B.Comm, MBA or a three year college business program diploma), you can apply for advanced standing. If you qualify, you will only need to take CITT's 5-course suite of specialized logistics courses to complete the academic requirement to earn the CCLP designation.

Apply for advanced standing towards the CCLP designation online here.

The link above will walk you through the exemption process. Note, you will need a CITT account to apply. If you don't have one, the link above will let you create one. 

Note: Candidates who have not completed a degree/diploma but have taken some business courses at the university or college level can apply for exemptions against individual business courses.

Once you've submitted your your application:

  • Applications for Advanced Academic Standing are subject to review and approval by the CITT Admissions Committee.
  • Please allow 2-3 weeks for your application to be processed. We will make every effort to process your application faster if possible, but to avoid any delays to receiving your CCLP designation, we recommend you allow plenty of time for the exemption application process.
  • You will receive a letter of confirmation when your information has been assessed. If you have not provided payment for exemptions granted to fast track your application, a charge of $275.00 + applicable tax will be assessed at that time. The credits granted will not be applied to your account until this payment is processed. Exemption and assessment fees are tax deductible.
  • CITT’s Advanced Academic Standing application process is a no-risk process—if exemptions are not granted, any fees charged will be refunded in full.

If you prefer, you can mail us a paper exemption application instead. Download the CCLP Program of Study Advanced Academic Standing Application (PDF) fill it out, and mail it to the address below.
