The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport Australia (CILTA) has unveiled a new Centre for Continuing Professional Development.

Coming on the back of a growing demand for greater continuing professional development (CPD) in the areas that impact supply chain training and passenger transport competencies, CILTA says the new centre is part of its attempt to fill the knowledge gap between technical colleges or universities and the requirements of industry management and operational staff.

"Continuing professional development is at the heart of our Institute’s international royal charter, granted in 1926 for the transport and logistics industries," spokesman for the Centre Dr Kim Hassall says.

"However, many skills in the total supply chain as well as passenger transport are required from several other professional areas of expertise that support supply chain and passenger transport.

"These areas include: management, purchasing, marketing, strategic planning, eBusiness, eLogistics, project management, etc, and these are the areas that we will expand on through augmenting our current professional development directory."

In all of the mentioned fields, CILTA says it will be expanding its CPD education through short programs, seminars, webinars, master-classes, and executive programs.

While the programs will not articulate into certificates, diplomas, or degrees, CILTA says the points gained through the programs can be used for industry standings such as Certified Practicing Logistician, Certified Transport Planner, or Certified Passenger Professional.

CILTA says online courses will be available for international customers and its expanded range of Professional Development Programs will also offer CPD points.
