Certification in Humanitarian Supply Chain Management (CHSCM)
Certification in Humanitarian Supply Chain Management (CHSCM) is offered as part of the Fritz Institute/CILT (UK) Humanitarian Logistics Certification Program. Humanitarian logisticians are called upon to provide responses in a variety of situations, sometimes planned for, but often happening without warning. In such situations, humanitarian logistics managers must have the ability to quickly construct and operate a supply chain to bring relief to those in need.
Developed with funding from DFID, ECHO and USAID, by experienced logisticians from ICRC, the International Rescue Committee, Medecins Sans Frontieres (Holland), Oxfam (GB), Save the Children (US), UNICEF, UNHCR, and WFP, CHSCM offers best practices in supply chain management from the humanitarian community, in combination with leading practices from the commercial sector and academia, in order to teach the essential planning and management skills required of humanitarian logistics managers.
The course consist of four units:
Unit 1 - Supply Chain Management in the Humanitarian World
Unit 2 - Planning for In-Kind Supply Chains
Unit 3 - Cash Transfer Programming
Unit 4 - Coordination and Implementation
