TORONTO, Ont. – CITT announced registration is open for its spring semester of logistics and business management courses, including an expansion of the semester due to increasing industry demand, the association said.
Last year saw CITT’s most popular spring semester ever, with more people starting – and continuing – course work towards their CCLP (CITT-Certified Logistics Professional) designation than ever before, said CITT, which in response has expanded its spring semester to offer every specialized logistics and business management course in the CCLP program of study.
“Of course we want to accommodate the growing number of learners who want to earn their CCLP designation as quickly as possible,” said Catherine Viglas, CITT president and CEO. “With all of our courses now available in every semester, year-round, people starting this spring can complete the course work required to earn the CCLP designation in as little as 15 months.”
This spring CITT has also added a new course – Accounting: The Fundamentals – to their suite of general business management courses offered in partnership with The University of Toronto School of Continuing Studies. “The CITT program of study is open to those of all professional and educational backgrounds,” Viglas added. “Learners can fill any gaps in their skill set through courses available through CITT. And those with previous business management education can apply for advanced standing to earn the CCLP designation faster.”
All of CITT’s courses can be taken individually, and each course counts towards the requirements for the CCLP designation. The CCLP designation is held 3:1 over other logistics designations in Canada, and comes highly recommended by industry managers and HR professionals as a career-building foundation for everyone who buys, sells, or manages the flow of goods and product or is impacted by supply chain logistics.
After the high demand this year, people are encouraged to register for courses early to guarantee their spot. The last day to register for CITT’s Spring Semester is April 20th. Logistics courses start on April 21st, 2016, the association said.
