The UK Warehousing Association, alongside the Logistics Learning Alliance (LLA), has developed a new warehouse manager certificate of professional competence (CPC).
The new programme will include guided learning hours and distance learning. Managers who successfully complete the programme will receive a qualification equivalent to Level 4/5 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework.
“The course is focused, relevant and designed to meet the needs of the industry and our aim and expectation is for the UKWA Warehouse Manager CPC to become the recognised industry standard of achievement for Warehouse Managers,” said Peter Ward, UKWA CEO.
LLA’s Managing Director, Peter Jones, said:
“The course will not only set the UK standard but will also meet global standards for the future. It will be an on-going programme for anyone aspiring to become a Warehouse Manager or Warehouse Managers looking to achieve a recognised standard and gain a qualification.”
In addition to the Warehouse Manager CPC qualification, the Logistics Learning Alliance is working with UKWA to provide a standard for warehouse supervisors. This course will be introduced in spring 2017.
