While the lockdown continues, the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT), have had to curtail some training and exams timetables. It has issued details of a SkillNets course scheduled for Limerick in September, with early bird offers for early bookings.
“We have over the last two months being adjusting to the “new normal” that is life under the cloud of COVID-19. I want to take this opportunity to update you on how the Institute is operating in these unprecedented times. Our key focus is on ensuring the safety of staff, partners and customers and as always, we remain committed to our learners and members with our high level of customer service,” said Mick Curran, Chief Executive, CILT.
“The office remains closed and the staff are working from home. Fortunately, we have always operated a flexible working policy so all of the necessary processes and technologies are already in place for us to be able to do this effectively. On our website (www.cilt.ie) is a list of email contacts for each department, these are continually monitored.”
Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management
Due to the cloud-based nature of its key systems, the Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management worked virtual classrooms until the end of the academic year. “We are looking forward to September to when classes recommence. Plans are in place that should the need arise we can commence with online classes on 12 Sept 2020, but it is hoped that this will not be necessary,” explained Mick.
ADR & DGSA Exams
All scheduled ADR Exams have been cancelled until further notice. As previously stated, the key focus is on ensuring the safety of staff, partners, and customers. “This is our guiding principle in relation to all our examinations. Once it is safe to commence examinations, we will. We are working with our examination centres to ensure that when it is safe to recommence examinations that we will be in a position to examine all those who need these examinations.”
Transport Manager CPC Exams
All scheduled Transport Manager CPC Exams have been cancelled until further notice.

Over the last 12 months, CILT SkillNet has looked more towards the online delivery of training. COVID 19 has accelerated this development and CILT SkillNet will soon launch a new eLearning platform with high-quality training programmes accessible 24/7.
