Certified Logistics Technician (CLT)


Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) training provides the core knowledge and skills required in supply chain operations, from entry level through supervisor. Curriculum – provided by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC), a national training, assessment, and certification system – is based on industry-defined and federally-endorsed standards.

The course educates candidates in global supply chain operations through four core areas of competency: logistics equipment and systems; safety/hazardous material handling; dispatch, routing and tracking; and shipping and receiving. Training is suitable for entry-level and incumbent workers in all types of supply chain facilities, including factories, distribution centers, warehouses and transporters.

The CLT has two components:

  • The foundational Certified Logistics Associate (CLA) provides an overview of supply chain logistics and good workplace habits
  • The mid-level technical CLT examines the primary processes of handling materials throughout the supply chain in greater depth

Training is a blend of 76 hours of online learning with reading materials, and instructor-led assessment preparation.

Candidates earn the portable CLT certification after passing both CLA and CLT exams. The CLT is accredited under the only global certification body for manufacturers, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI-ISO 17024).

Note: This training does not address the specific skills involved in operating vehicles or equipment.
