Operating at Level 2 (GCSE, O level standard), this professional qualification requires 160 guided learning hours. To achieve the CILT International Introductory Certificate in Logistics and Transport, learners must study and pass two mandatory units and two optional units. Optional units allow learners to specialise in different areas of logistics and transport and choose units that suit themselves and their employer.

Assessment is by examination and a single unit can be taken as a stand-alone course.

If a student has already studied for the International Entry Award (Level 1) they will not need to re-take the Introduction to Logistics module.

Students studying our qualifications will automatically gain access to the International Knowledge Centre – giving access to an extensive range of best practice and learning material.
