Award Winning Service

in 2011 the award was won by the partnership of the Fritz Institute, the CILT and LLA for the Certification in Humanitarian Logistics programme.

Since LLA first started delivering these programmes is 2006, we have successfully graduated over 600 students in the three courses that constitute the Certification  programmes.

“The program is viewed as highly relevant and valuable by students, their managers, and senior stakeholders. We cite hundreds of examples of favorable comments, with only rare criticism. Benefits are seen in terms not only of improved performance by the trainees, but also in improved career development, increased confidence, improved recognition of the role of logistics, increased understanding of the wider scene, and improved professionalism. Students also report that they have enjoyed the course. These benefits translate into organizational performance improvements.”
