EDUCATION & TRAINING

Training is the major objective of our institute. Since 1972 this institute started course in Storekeeping in both the Sinhala and English medium. These were eight week courses, which led to the certificate in Storekeeping. In this we fulfilled an urgent need for some qualifications in the lowest rung in the field of P&MM which enabled nearly 1,500 Storekeepers obtaining lucrative employment in West Asia.

Next to be introduced was the Stores Management Course in both medium of 10 weeks duration which later became the foundation course qualifying personnel to follow the Diploma Course in Purchasing and Materials Management in the English Medium. Purchasing Management is yet another foundation course that had been since introduced.

The curriculum for the Graduate Diploma course of 15 modules was drawn up in consultation with the relevant Faculties of the University of Colombo and by giving due consideration to many modules of similar courses run by similar institutes in other parts of the world. The duration of this course (conducted only during the weekends) extends to a period of 3 years. Twenty one such courses have been completed and those who successfully passed in all the modules were awarded the Diploma. This has enabled them to obtain better employment both locally and abroad.

Our faculty consists of very senior and experienced members of our institute as well as experts in different fields drawn from the Universities as well as Public and Private sector institutions and establishments.

A course in Shipping, Air Cargo and Containerisation commenced in 1988 which is of 8 weeks duration where most of the resource personnel are drawn from the port, shipping, insurance, freight forwarding, customs and other allied sectors.

A course in Warehousing commenced two years ago lasting 6 weeks meant for Warehouse Clerks and has been very popular. This, too, is a job-oriented course. Another new course introduced recently is the course in International Trade.

Several new courses to meet the ever growing diversity of needs of industry trade and commerce are being planned and will be introduced to the Education & Training Programme in due course. An International Diploma Course in Supply Chain Management is also conducted in association with the International Trade Centre / UN / WTO. This comprises of a Certificate Stage, an Advanced Certificate Stage and the Final Diploma Stage.

To meet the growing needs of globalization the institute carries out programmes in Information Technology related to Supply and Materials Management and have a well equipped IT laboratory.
