Toronto, Ontario—People interested in CITT’s industry-preferred CCLP (CITT-Certified Logistics Professional) designation may be closer to earning it than they think. CITT recognizes formal business education—degrees, 3-year diplomas and individual courses—towards Advanced Standing for the academic requirement of the CCLP designation. CITT’s online CCLP Route Finder tool can simply and quickly tell people if they qualify.

“Prior business education can significantly cut the number of courses needed to earn the CCLP designation. So students who start in CITT’s winter semester in January could be 60 percent of the way—or more—to completing the academic requirements for the designation by the end 2016,” said Catherine Viglas, CITT president and CEO. “We encourage people to find out if they qualify for Advanced Standing by using our convenient online CCLP Route Finder tool at www.CITT.ca/routefinder.”

“Advanced Standing provides exemptions against the general business education requirements for the CCLP designation” explained Viglas. “CITT’s suite of specialized logistics courses is required for every professional who holds their CCLP. This guarantees a national standard while giving logistics professionals knowledge that is portable throughout their career progression. Even senior people who’ve worked in the industry for over a decade report the courses give them a new depth of understanding to manage profitable supply chain operations.”
