Fritz-CILT Humanitarian Certifications
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.
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 CTP 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.
The suite consists of the following three programmes below.
CHL is aimed at people working (or aspire to work) within humanitarian aid organisations in (or interacting with) supply functions, typically involving warehousing, transport and inventory.
The Certification in Humanitarian Supply Chain Management (CHSCM) is offered as part of the Fritz Institute/CILT (UK) Humanitarian Logistics Certification Programme.
Medical logistics is aimed at experienced logisticians and medical specialists handing the medical supply within humanitarian organisations.
