Certificate in Logistics



The Certificate in Logistics is offered in coordination with the Red River College (RRC) program Transportation and Distribution Management. To qualify for the Certificate, students will be required to complete eight of the eleven courses offered in the program. Students will be able to select from six courses offered through UMTI and five courses offered by RRC.

The courses offered by UMTI match the curriculum of the Canadian Institute of Traffic and Transportation (CITT). Students who receive the Certificate in Logistics would be able to complete their CITT-Certified Logistics Professional (CCLP) designation with preliminary courses offered at RRC or many other post-secondary institutions.

Most people working in the transportation industry have learned their "trade" on-the-job. The new reality is that industry can no longer afford to educate its staff this way, but the need for continuous learning has increased. Globalization and technological changes have made logistics management the new competitive edge. To advance a career in this field now requires a new level of professionalism and formal education.

This program will be helpful to persons who wish to enhance their career in the transportation and logistics industry. Our graduates will have the opportunity to work in the transportation industry in shipping, receiving, inventory, distribution, management and marketing positions in sectors such as:

  • Carriers: Airlines, railways, trucking, airports, pipelines, marine, etc.
  • Third Party Logistics Providers: Freightforwarders, customs brokers, public warehousing, etc.
  • Manufacturing: Metal industry, woodworking, machinery, packaging, etc.
  • Agribusiness: Grain handling, food processing, feed industry, etc.
