CILT (UK) has announced it will be offering digital solutions for its Transport Manager CPC from August, supported by online assessments.
The organisation offers a range of learning solutions to support those working in transport management, across both the passenger transport and road haulage sectors.
“Everyone involved in road transport who operates vehicles for hire and reward must demonstrate evidence of professional competence,” said CILT.
“Along with the Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) there is a broad spectrum of additional skills needed to be effective in all aspects of transport operations.
“As the professional body representing logistics, transport and supply chain practitioners and professionals, CILT strive to ensure that the required skills and competency across the breadth of the profession is known and recognised.
“This is done through qualification assessment as well as demonstrable experience in the workplace mapped to our professional standards.”
CILT emphasises how recent months have brought into focus the critical role everyone working in logistics, transport and supply chain operations plays in day-to-day life. It says it will soon launch a global framework and recognised designation to represent the highly skilled individuals across the profession.
“All of our learning solutions will form part of the multiple pathways to attain a professional designation,” said CILT.
“We know a job role is more than its title, and being a transport manager involves more breadth of skill than only holding the Transport Manager CPC.
“CILT are building accessible courses that suit individual needs wherever you are in your career, whether you need to attain the Transport Manager CPC, take a refresher, or enhance your skills in other relevant skill sets, we will have a solution for you.”
In response to the changing landscape across education, CILT says it has moved quickly to expand its modes of course delivery and assessment.
“From August we will be offering digital blended solutions for Transport Manager CPC, as well as other learning solutions. This is supported by an online proctored assessment which can be sat at a convenient location to learners, including in your own home.”
One of the first organisations to take part using CILT’s new mode of delivery was Plymouth Citybus, whose commitment to supporting staff development was recently recognised when it received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for ‘Promoting Opportunity’.
Richard Stevens, managing director at Plymouth Citybus, said: “I want the very best support for our people; therefore we carefully select external bodies to work with, to ensure they genuinely add value to our team’s career progressions and development.
“After consideration of suitable training organisations, we were delighted to appoint CILT (UK) as the provider of our Passenger Transport Manager CPC requirements.”
