The IoSCM Level 2 Transport and Logistics course is tailored to students who have limited experience in the logistics and transport sector, who are keen to get a good grounding in place for their career.

Course Introduction

Completing a Logistics and Transport course with the Institute of Supply Chain Management (IoSCM) can certify your knowledge and skills, to give you the best grounding for progression in your career. We offer each student much more than just a logistics qualification; we provide the opportunity to grow, learn and progress as a professional with our expert support network and unrivalled resources.

Unlike other logistics training providers, we allow students to develop their skills through a bespoke distance learning format, with support from industry experts every step of the way. You can custom build your course to suit your current experience level, your personal career ambitions, and the objectives of your current employer. The IoSCM Level 2 Logistics and Transport qualification is internationally recognised, and was designed and developed by experts in the field. Along with expert guidance, you will receive first class study materials which are aligned with National Occupational Standards (NOS).

Once you have completed your level 2 course, we offer qualifications to support your ongoing career, including:

As well as training individuals, we also work with businesses to train larger groups of employees. To find out more about how we can develop your team’s skills, call us on 0800 1422 522.

What are National Occupational Standards?

The NOS framework specifies the UK standards of performance that people are expected to achieve in their work, and the knowledge and skills they need to perform effectively. These standards are approved by UK government regulators.

Essentially, meeting the NOS framework means that with the IoSCM Level 2 Logistics and Transport course, you will learn exactly what is required in order to be successful in your job role. This will help you to become a valuable asset within your role, giving you the kinds of skills you couldn’t gain from a more academically-focused course.


Through completion of this IoSCM Level 2 course, you will receive an internationally-recognised qualification in Logistics and Transport from the Institute of Supply Chain Management.

As well as this, you will be awarded a Level 2 in Supply Chain and Operations from SFEDI Awards, an Ofqual regulated awarding organisation which is well recognised across the industry.

What is Ofqual?

Ofqual is the government organisation that regulates qualifications and the organisations that offer them, maintaining standards and therefore confidence in education across England.

When you choose to study with IoSCM, you can rest assured that every qualification is Ofqual regulated, guaranteeing high quality and a worthy investment for individuals and employers alike.


The IoSCM Level 2 Transport and Logistics course is roughly equivalent to a GCSE graded A* to C. However, an IoSCM course is studied in your own time, at your own pace and from the comfort of your own home. We offer logistics courses online rather than in the classroom, allowing you to study around your current commitments and save valuable time and money.

At IoSCM, we offer logistics qualifications which are widely recognised and sought after by employers and businesses. The Level 2 Transport and Logistics course provides you with valuable industry knowledge which is tailored to you and your logistics career, giving you the best chance of progressing within your role.

The Level 2 Logistics and Transport course from IoSCM offers a variety of optional units along with core units, so you can tailor your studies to the skills you want to develop.

By choosing units which will benefit your current role, as well as units which can develop your skills to the next level, you can have the best possible foundation for success in your ongoing logistics career.

Award, Certificate or Diploma?

Our qualifications are available as three different sizes, depending on how many units you choose and therefore, how long it will spend studying.

  • Award: Consists of one Group A unit and is the shortest available qualification.
  • Certificate: Complete one Group A unit and two additional units (either Group A or Group B), providing you with solid knowledge.
  • Diploma: More in-depth and comprehensive, you’ll study one Group A unit and also choose three additional units (either Group A or Group B).

What are Unit Credit Values?

Accredited qualifications in the UK are based on units, each of which have a credit value.

The Unit Credit Value (UCV) gives learners an indication of how long the unit will take to complete. For example 1 credit value usually represents around 10 hours of learning. The more units you study, the more credits you’ll accumulate. The amount of credits will decide the size of your qualification, an award, certificate or diploma.

The value of each unit does not demonstrate the complexity – this is dictated by the level of qualification. For example, level 2 is comparable to a GCSE qualification and a level 7 is of the same level as a Masters’ degree.
