Logistics and Transport Operations – (IoSCM)

This course is delivered by the Institute of Supply Chain Management and is designed for individuals or teams within the logistics and transport sector who wish to develop their knowledge to a more senior level. This course will help you to build the knowledge and skills you need to progress to the next stage of your logistics career.

The course provides the opportunity to develop your skills across a variety of areas, depending on the units you choose to study.

The flexibility of the units allows you to customise your qualification so that it’s entirely tailored to you. You have the benefit of choosing units that will enhance your current job performance, and equip you with the skills needed to take your career to the next level.

The full Level 3 Logistics and Transport qualification is available as a Diploma. However, we also offer the option of working towards an Award or a Certificate, if you would prefer a less comprehensive course which can be completed more quickly.

The qualifications are available in three different sizes, depending on how many units you choose and therefore, how long you will spend studying.

Award: Consists of one core unit and is the shortest available qualification, support 6 months
Certificate: Complete one core unit and two additional units (from either core or optional units), providing you with solid knowledge, support 18 months
Diploma: More in-depth and comprehensive, you’ll study one core unit and also choose three additional units (from either core or optional units), support 24 months
