UKWA launches new Warehouse Manager CPC qualification

Jan 11 | 2024

In January, the UK Warehousing Association (UKWA) will launch the first ever independently accredited Warehouse Manager CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence), kicking off the ‘2024: The Year of Warehousing’ campaign.

UKWA hopes its new qualification will attract talented people to the industryThe new qualification has been designed to be equivalent to the well-established Transport Manager CPC and reflects the Association’s commitment to driving up standards within the industry.

According to UKWA CEO Clare Bottle, the Warehouse Manager CPC is also intended to support the sector in attracting and retaining talented people, while equipping them with the latest knowledge skills and behaviours required in a modern warehouse.

“A report from Prologis earlier this year revealed that logistics workers value opportunities for career progression,” said Clare. “Yet, until now there has been no recognised qualification for warehouse managers.”

The Warehouse Manager CPC will be taught as a two-week course, including in-person classroom tuition covering all aspects of warehousing, with candidates assessed by examination to ensure high standards are met. Currently, UKWA is recruiting the first cohort for 2024, with plans to introduce further courses in the future.
