Humanitarian Logistics Certification Programmes
Humanitarian Logisticians and Supply Chain Managers are called upon to provide responses in a variety of situations, sometimes planned for, but often happening without warning. In such situations, they must have the ability to quickly construct and operate a supply chain to bring relief to those in need.
Uniquely, the Fritz Institute/CILT Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain programmes are designed to certify the practitioners application of their skills in relevant humanitarian aid situations. LLA is proud to be the exclusive learning partner delivering these programmes for the humanitarian community through distance learning.
Where other qualifications are not related to the humanitarian world, the Certification programmes have been designed by the sector for the sector. Updating the programmes in 2017 to include Cash Transfer Programming has demonstrated that the programmes remain as relevant and current now as they were when they were first launched in 2006.
Developed with funding from DFID, ECHO and USAID, by experienced logisticians from ICRC, the International Rescue Committee, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) (Holland), Oxfam (GB), Save the Children (US), UNICEF, UNHCR, and WFP, CHSCM offers best practices in supply chain management from the humanitarian community, in combination with leading practices from the commercial sector and academia, in order to teach the essential planning and management skills required of humanitarian logistics managers.
We also provide the Humanitarian Essentials Logistics Module (HELM) Programme. HELM is studied primarily through face-to-face training events, although a distance learning option is available. These events serve as a development programme covering the essential functions and roles within humanitarian logistics and the supply chain. Attendance at the events is open to those who are looking at developing new skills, refreshing their professional knowledge and expanding their supply chain and logistics knowledge.
All of the HELM programmes are delivered as an open course in various locations globally. If your organisation has specific learning requirements, the HELM 1 and 2 content can be tailored and delivered to meet your organisations’ needs.
