Nineteen young professionals graduated from Course 10 of the ECG Academy and were awarded the prestigious Certificate in Automobile Logistics Management at the ECG Spring Congress and General Assembly on May 26 in Baveno, Italy. They now join the ranks of almost 200 Academy Alumni who have achieved this.
The ECG Academy was developed in response to demand for specialist training for middle managers working in the finished vehicle logistics sector. The course is fully accredited and unique in the industry.
The Certificate is an essential qualification for young managers in the sector and allows them to deliver the highest possible standard of services to their customers.
The course takes place over five modules and at least 24 days with a combination of intensive practice oriented training and classroom work. These modules are held at different locations around Europe to give the participants insight into the practical realities of the different elements that make up vehicle logistics, as well as the regional variations across Europe.
The lectures are given by a combination of academic staff from various Universities across Europe, as well as senior practicing logistics professionals and suppliers from the sector. The outcome is therefore an excellent, balanced combination of theoretical training in logistics disciplines and practical examples from the sector.
The course was originally designed and run by the Executive Education arm of the European Business School and today it is managed under contract to ECG by the Education Unit of KPMG.
