ABSTRACT
The views of the author on his decision to study for the Certificate in Logistics, that is offered by the Institute of Logistics and Transport were presented. He found out that study methods were flexible and he opted to complete this course by distance learning, rather than undertaking a day-release course at college. The course content consisted of three modules. These are the people skills, the resource skills and the operational skills. An optional warehousing skills module was also offered. The distance learning assignments were completed and sent to his tutor who checked them and channeled feedback to him through the course administrator. Due to home and work commitments, the pressure to complete the modules within the timescales allowed was a major challenge.
