Understand freight forwarding and how to move freight efficiently to satisfy your clients.
We work in a complex industry. Freight Forwarders need to plan and execute shipments by land, air and ocean, understand routes, rates and carrier options. They also need to be able to accurately quote, arrange shipments and manage transportation documentation. Our courses will teach you all of these skills, including how to work with shippers, consignees, carriers, warehouses, packaging companies, financial institutions and government agencies.
The CIFFA Exam Challenge is only available to the employees of our regular members, who have at least 15 years of industry experience. The online exam takes three hours to complete and covers all topics contained in the CIFFA Certificate and FIATA Diploma - Advanced Freight Services courses.
The successful completion of the Exam Challenge grants the CIFFA Certificate, the eligibility to receive the FIATA Diploma, and a $590 credit towards one of the three CIFFA/Schulich Management courses - all of which lead to achieving the Professional Freight Forwarder (PFF) designation. If a student fails, $590 is applied toward the CIFFA Certificate.
