Traffic Office

Advanced Apprenticeship and Level 3 Certificate

Your staff will develop first class organisational and planning skills - vital to the efficiency of your logistics operation

The programme

The Level 3 Certificate in Traffic Office (QCF) has been designed for those individuals who are involved in planning and organising the transport and movement of goods. They give the opportunity to demonstrate competence and understanding against a standard set by the needs of the industry as defined by Skills for Logistics.

The Level 3 Certificate in Traffic Office is a combined qualification that forms both the competence and knowledge elements of the Advanced Apprenticeship.

The programme ensures employees understand the relationship between the role of the traffic office and business success.
