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 Logistics (CHL) Programme should consider studying another course with us.

Certification in Humanitarian Logistics (CHL) Graduates

Upon completion of the CHL Programme with us, graduates will have learned about the core operational aspects of a humanitarian relief effort. Studying additional Programmes with us will help you to learn about more complex issues within the Supply Chain and improve your understanding of the overall relief effort, not just the key points.

CHL graduates should consider the following:

Humanitarian Essentials Logistics Module (HELM)
