Supply chain professionals now have 14 accredited Canadian educational offerings to choose from.

The Canadian Supply Chain Sector Council (CSCSC) has approved six additional educational programs related to supply chain management. The newly-accredited programs join eight given approval late last year.

The CSCSC accredited the programs through its National Accreditation Program (the NAP) in late March.

The winners

The six new accreditations went to programs from five academic institutions. They include:

•    The Specialist in Transportation and Logistics Program at Champlain College – St Lambert;

•    The Business Administration, Logistics and Transportation Program at Collège Communautaire du Nouveau Brunswick – Dieppe;

•    The Business Logistics Program at Georgian College of Applied Arts and Technology;

•    The Supply Chain and Inventory Management Diploma Program at HBI College; and

•    The BBA Supply Chain Management Concentration and MBA Supply Chain Management Concentration Programs at Wilfrid Laurier University.

The criteria

The NAP recognizes educational offerings that meet the CSCSC’s standards for accreditation, which were created with the assistance of CSA Standards and with significant input from supply chain stakeholders.

The standards are based on national and international best practices and principles, and include requirements for course/program needs assessment, design, development, delivery and student evaluation.

Post-secondary institutions, associations and private training schools are eligible to submit their programs and courses for review.

The deadline for submission of information about courses or programs for review in the next round is May 1, 2010.
