This Award is designed to introduce learners to the concept of purchasing. The award is made up of five elements that contain sufficient knowledge to give learners an overall view of the important role played by purchasing in the context of logistics management. In each of these elements the emphasis is placed on the principles and techniques involved. The program aims to equip learners with a solid foundation of knowledge on which they can build with experience.
