Higher Certificate in Supply Chain Management

Higher Certificate in Supply Chain Management

SAQA ID: 117683

Our Higher Certificate in Supply Chain Management is an IMM Qualification on NQF level 5 and is quality assured by the Council on Higher Education (CHE). You have 12 months to complete the qualification although should you require it for whatever reason you may complete the qualification within 4 years.

Supply chain management is the management of the flow of materials, goods and services and includes the transformation process, which converts inputs such as materials and components into final products and services.

Logistics, which is an integral part of supply chain management, lies at the centre of almost every consumer requirement worldwide. In South Africa it is a scarce skill – the country is in drastic need of skilled talent in this field, with a shortage of somewhat 130 000 logistics managers recorded. One global study estimates that demand for supply chain professionals exceeds supply by six to one.

Once qualified you will have learnt the fundamental skills required to engage in the processes and inter relationships across the supply chain so as to create sustainable value for organisations. The Higher Certificate also provides you with a ‘foot in the door’ in a variety of industries that is desperate for these skills.

After completion of your Higher Certificate, you can continue your learning with IMM Graduate School and apply to do our BCom in International Supply Chain Management and then follow on with our BCom Honours in Supply Chain Management. Your learning path with IMM Graduate School is clearly laid out and will open many career opportunities for you.
