The internationally acclaimed SCPD Programme is adopted by universities and educational institutions in Singapore and the region, Government training academies, and global logistics corporations


To promote professionalism in logistics and supply chain industry, CILTS offers a wide range of educational and training programmes for practitioners to upgrade their qualifications, knowledge and skill sets.

The Supply Chain Professional Development (SCPD) Programme is one of the first e-learning programmes in the world that provides a flexible, convenient and cost-effective way for logistics professionals (and other industry professionals) to upgrade their skills and knowledge.


The SCPD Programme comprises two levels, the Advanced Professional Certificate (four modules: SCPD05-08) and the Professional Certificate (four modules: SCPD01-04).  Each module takes about two to three weeks to complete.

The syllabus for the Advanced Professional Certificate level also addresses the curriculum for the CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL LOGISTICIAN (CPL) certification, which is exclusively awarded by CILTS.  CPL candidates taking the four advanced SCPD modules (SCPD05-08) may proceed to sit for the CPL examination upon meeting eligibility conditions of work experience and qualifications.  Successful candidates will be awarded the CPL certificate.

As my role is responsible for the after-sales business in the company, the module shared some good ideas for me to establish the right KPIs in our service methodology to monitor and measure our service quality. I would recommend the course to anyone who wants to have a quick overview of this industry!
