One day left to apply for fully funded professional training

Only one day remains for applicants to take advantage of the fully funded professional training programme for women in transport and logistics, as offered by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport: South Africa (CILTSA).

CILTSA has secured funding from the Transport Education and Training Authority (TETA) for the training of 30 employed women. Successful learners will be awarded the International Certificate in Logistics and Transport by UK-based professional body CILT International.

“This is an historic ‘first’ for both TETA and CILTSA; as this is the first time that TETA has been awarded funding for a Candidacy Programme,” explains Elvin Harris, president of CILTSA.

“The programme is aimed at women who have some experience in logistics and/or warehousing operations,” says Harris. “Once they have completed the programme, they will be able to add even more value and contribute to increased efficiencies in the workplace, as the theoretical and practical experience offered by this programme will equip them with unparalleled learning and growth opportunities”.

“The programme, which is scheduled to be completed by October 2018, focuses on business and the industry as a whole,” continues Harris. The subjects include: Business Theory, Business Application, Warehousing, as well as Freight Transport Operation.”

“One of the most valuable and exciting outcomes is that once the candidates have completed the programme, they will be encouraged and assisted to apply for the professional designation,” says Harris.

“These designations are prestigious, globally recognised and provide successful candidates with a significant competitive advantage. CILT can also award the designations of CMILT (Chartered Member), as well as FCILT (Chartered Fellow), once the candidates have achieved certain additional qualifications and experience.”
