The Construction Logistics Programme has today (Friday 23 February 2018) reached a significant milestone by accrediting its 100th Construction Logistics Planning Practitioner.
The Transport for London funded Construction Logistics Programme, which aims to minimise the impact of construction logistics and the widespread adoption of Construction Logistics Plans, has been running an extremely popular series of Construction Logistics Planning training courses since May 2017. The industry-wide uptake of this training has meant that today’s Practitioner course has seen the 100th Practitioner receive accreditation.
Delivered as separate Foundation and Practitioner modules, the courses provide information, guidance and support for those involved in the preparation, assessment and delivery of Construction Logistics Plans, which are part of the planning consent process and provide the framework to minimise the impact of construction logistics.
The Practitioner module, which can only be attended following the Foundation course is the practical element to the training, giving delegates the required knowledge and skills to develop, assess and deliver effective Construction Logistics Plans. On successful completion of the one-day training, delegates are awarded Practitioner status and recorded in the online register of qualified CLP Practitioners, which can be found here.
Delivered by Arup and accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the courses are currently funded by Transport for London. To date a further 100 people have received Foundation training; with the current scheduled courses at maximum capacity and a growing waiting list for future dates.
“It’s extremely encouraging to know we’ve accredited our 100th Practitioner today,” said Peter Binham, City Planner – Freight, Transport for London. “The uptake of these courses has been phenomenal, demonstrating a clear willingness to effectively implement Construction Logistics Plans and ultimately to reduce congestion, environmental impact and road risk on our streets. We’d like to see industry-wide recognition of these Foundation and Practitioner courses as a standard to continue to operate by; this will then ensure the sustained use of Construction Logistics Plans”.
