Setting a new standard for warehouse managers

In collaboration with Logistics Learning Alliance (LLA), the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) has developed and launched a new Warehouse Manager Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC).

The study programme involves both guided learning hours and distance learning and, once successfully completed, leads to a qualification which is equivalent to Level 4/5 of the Qualifications and Credit Framework.

The UKWA Warehouse Manager CPC was officially launched in September with a pilot programme at LLA’s training centre at Coalville near Leicester.

Peter Ward, UKWA’s CEO, commented: “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.”

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, Logistics Learning Alliance is working with UKWA to provide a standard for warehouse supervisors. This course will be introduced in spring 2017.
