LLA has been the sole Delivery Partner of the Humanitarian Certification Advisory Group since the programmes launched in 2006.  In that time, over 1,400 graduates of the programmes have helped their organisation to support beneficiary programmes globally.

We pride ourselves on providing our Humanitarian students with an enjoyable and fulfilling learning experience, from enrolment all the way through to graduation. Our aim is to enhance the knowledge and understanding of our learner and provide them with the skills they need to improve their performance, as well as Supply Chain capacity within their NGO or organisation.

Some of our students enjoy their studies with us so much that they decide to stay on and study another course with us, and some decide to study our full suite of Humanitarian Programmes to maximise their learning experience!

In this blog, we take a look at why graduates of the Fritz Institute/CILT Certification in Humanitarian Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog) Programme should consider studying another course with us.

Certification in Humanitarian Medical Logistics Practices (MedLog) Graduates

Upon completion of the MedLog Programme with us, graduates will have learned about how to plan and organise the Medical Supply Chain and Cold Chain within their NGO or organisation, as well as best practices for the handling and storage of vital medicines and other important medical treatments. Studying additional Programmes with us will help you to learn about the wider Supply Chain and develop an understanding of common and complex issues within a relief effort.

MedLog graduates should consider the following:

Certification in Humanitarian Logistics (CHL)

  • CHL focusses on the core operational aspects of a humanitarian relief effort and provides a broader understanding of how the supply chain works
  • The most popular of all of our Fritz-CILT HLC Programmes
  • Set at a similar level to the MedLog Programme
  • Designed to be completed within 15-18 months
  • Subject areas:
  • Humanitarian Supply Chains
  • Warehousing & Inventory
  • Procurement
  • Transport
  • Fleet Management
  • Cash Transfer Programming
  • Managing a Humanitarian Supply Chain Response

Certification in Humanitarian Supply Chain Management (CHSCM)

  • CHSCM focusses on the Supply Chain from a strategic perspective rather than an operational one like CHL does
  • Studying CHSCM will allow you to build upon your MedLog experience and develop your skills in managing the Supply Chain within an NGO or organisation
  • Set at the level of a Masters degree (but does not contain the depth of content to be classified as one)
  • Designed to be completed within 12 months
  • Subject areas:
  • Supply Chain Management in the Humanitarian World
  • Planning for In-Kind Supply Chain
  • Planning for Cash Transfer Programming
  • Supply Chain Coordination and Operation

Humanitarian Essentials Logistics Module (HELM)

  • A face-to-face alternative to distance learning
  • 4-5 day training events with locations and dates across East and West Africa
  • Designed to improve core skills and a good option for those looking to refresh their knowledge, or as an introduction to our learning platform for staff members
  • Opportunity to meet with members of our team and other students!
  • Three different HELM options available:
  • HELM 1 – Supply Chain, Warehouse & Inventory, Fleet Management & Transport
  • HELM 2 – Procurement, Medical Logistics, Leadership & Management
