In that regard, he said, the institution, was collaborating with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) for approval to run two of its flagship programmes, namely, the International Professional Certificate in Logistics and Transport and International Professional Diploma in Logistics and Transport.
Prof Nyarko said those programmes aimed at equipping participants with the knowledge and skills to manage transport and logistics operations.
He, therefore, appealed to the youth, particularly, those within the Cape Coast Municipality and its environs to take advantage and enrol on the programmes which had ready job markets for successful graduates.
"More collaborations and linkages with both local and international universities and bodies such as the Bismarch State College and Gremkay International, both in the USA, are being discussed for implementing as soon as practicable", he said.
Prof Nyarko urged the students to study seriously since the school would not compromise on examination malpractices adding that; "If you are found cheating, you will be dismissed from the school."
He further urged them to refrain from anonymous letters or text messages as a means of having their grievances addressed.
"The authorities of this institution are prepared to listen to your grievances at any time within the context of using the right channels of communication," he said.
The Chairman of Board Directors, Dr Kwesi Nduom, commended the students for their resolve to acquire knowledge which would guide them towards their future growth and development.
He announced a package that would serve as a start-up capital on completion of the programme and urged them to remain focused and achieve their aim.
