SOLE Certification and Recognition Programs
The practice of logistics is a professional discipline. The Society's professional certification and recognition programs recognize the professional stature and accomplishments of logisticians within commerce, industry, defense, international, federal and local government agencies, as well as in academic and private institutions. The adoption of a certification program in October 1972 was a major step by SOLE to further the accreditation of professionals in the logistics field. This certification program was expanded in 2005 to include recognition of accomplishments for individual prior to certification in their profession. The certification program was further expanded in 2006 to recognize professionals in the sub-discipline of Logistics Chain Management. The expanded certification program recognizes the functional interrelationships within the professional responsibilities of logisticians regardless of their occupational roles.
Starting early in the logistician's career, he/she begins by earning the recognition as a Demonstrated Logistician, then Demonstrated Senior Logistician and finally Demonstrated Master Logistician. These recognitions are provided based on continuous experience and professional development.
The next step in the process provides for certification in Logistics Chain Management as a Certified Master Logistician (CML).
The ultimate recognition in the profession is attained through the achievement of certification as a Certified Professional Logistician (CPL). This certification covers the entire scope of practice that the logistics professional will engage in during his/her career.
