Testimonial

”HELM really reflects the best practice based on humanitarian context and sphere project minimum standard, that is why the head of my organisation had to send two of my staff to attended the HELM event in Nairobi last year and he had to authorised the tuition fees to be covered by the organisation the way he did to me when I attended the same event in October this year.
This course has covered all the logistics functions where I have found myself fit in all areas of logistics e.g. warehousing, fleet, transport, supply chain, import/export and procurement, meaning that I can fit in any capacity within those areas mentioned above unlike before enrolled for this course.”
