IWLA Warehouse Logistics Professional (WLP) Certification Program
The International Warehouse Logistics Association WLP Certification Program recognizes members and nonmembers accomplishments through a tiered certification program designed specifically for warehouse logistics professionals.
The IWLA Education Committee designed the WLP program to reflect varying levels of expertise and involvement in the industry. Professionals from every facet of the warehouse logistics employment can become certified through the WLP Program.
The IWLA Education Committee oversees IWLA’s course offerings and the certification program and processes final approval on all certification applicants. (The WLP program has replaced the Certified Logistics Professional (CLP) program. Please note all existing CLP designees are automatically awarded the new CWLP designation.)
