A LOGISTICS practitioner-oriented certification program was launched last Friday by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) together with the Supply Chain Management Association of the Philippines and the Federation of Forwarders Association in the Philippines (FEDFAP) with assistance from the Japan External Trade Organization.

The Certified Philippine Logistics Master (CPLM) Program will start in July and aims to professionalize the country’s logistics industry through a curriculum that upgrades participants’ knowledge of logistics practices and strengthens the network of logistics practitioners in the country.

Designed by Filipino practitioners, the program will explore different components of supply chain management and logistics systems — from forecasting, product acquisition and transportation to delivery. Well-known Filipino lecturers and practitioners will form the teaching pool.

Those who qualify for certification are expected to have the capability to implement logistics reforms in their respective organizations as well as perform cost-efficient and environment-friendly initiatives through the implementation of green logistics.

CPLM is patterned after the Certified Logistics Master Course in Japan. The latter was also earlier localized and launched in Thailand and Indonesia. A similar program is eyed for Vietnam.

Angelito Colona, PCCI vice president for Transportation, ICT and Logistics, said the private sector sees CPLM as a strategic tool to help enhance Philippine industries’ productivity and, in turn, improve the country’s overall competitiveness.

Erich Lingad, co-chair of the PCCI Logistics Committee and president of FEDFAP, said a full course runs for 23 weeks conducted every Saturday at the new PCCI offices at McKinley in Makati City.

Practitioners in supervisory and managerial levels will qualify for the program. Fees are estimated at P50,000 for the entire course.
