A Message from our CEO -- How we’re managing through COVID-19

It’s been an unusual and challenging couple of weeks in Ireland and beyond, and here at CILT Ireland we have been monitoring COVID-19 related guidance closely and responding accordingly.

I wanted to provide you with an update on how we have amended our courses through this difficult time. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates appropriately and promptly. Our key focus is on ensuring the safety of staff, partners and customers and as always, we remain committed to our learners and members with our high level of customer service. 

Our office

Our office is currently closed and our staff are working from home. Fortunately, we have always operated a flexible working policy so all of the necessary processes and technologies are already in place for us to be able to do this effectively.

Our courses

Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management

Due to the cloud-based nature of our key systems, The Higher Certificate in Business, Logistics and Supply Chain Management will be working via virtual classrooms until the end of the academic year.

ADR & DGSA Exams

All scheduled ADR Exams have been cancelled until further notice.

The HSA has signed the Multilateral Agreement M324 which covers the area of ADR concerning driver training certificates and safety adviser certificates. They also have signed Multilateral Agreement M326 which covers the Periodic Inspection And Test Of Pressure Receptacles For The Carriage Of Gases Of Class 2. All information in connecting to ADR can be found on the following link https://www.cilt.ie/Education-Exams/Exams/ADR

TM CPC Exams

All scheduled TM CPC Exams have been cancelled until further notice. But a provision date of 2nd September 2020 has been pencilled in for the next examination.

Our key remit, to promote professionalism and enhance standards in logistics, transport and supply chain sector through the provision of education and services, stays resolute and for our students and customers who need to contact us we available. 


My very best wishes to you and your families at this difficult time.

If you have any queries at all, please don't hesitate to contact the Institute by email at info@cilt.ie
