Questions and answers
Are you running the beginner course thanksAnswer:
Hi No I am afraid we do not do a beginners course in Freight Transport Operations. However, we are currently running a special offer whereby you can get free access to our learning materials (with no tutor) and there is a unit in the Level 1 Award in Logistics and Transport, which is called Transport and Distribution in Logistics. You can get free access to this and it might serve you well.This was helpful.

Hi there Yes, your course materials can be downloaded and printed off if you wish. There is no tutor assigned to these short courses.
