Don't miss out on project cargo training course

December 17 - Further to the HLPFI news report on November 10, organisers of an international freight forwarding training short course are keen that participants do not miss out as there are only a few places left.

The course has been recognised as part of the management systems certification to achieve Standard: 4801:2001, 9001:2008 (Applicable codes: ANZ6644).

The two-day Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management course has been designed to fast-track skills in project cargo management and has been included as part of the ISO 9001:2008 certification achieved by the specialist forwarder network, the Project Professionals Group (PPG).

The course, which to date has attracted 16 registrations, will be held at the Meritus Mandarin Hotel in Singapore from 28-29 January, 2010, following Breakbulk Asia.

PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said: "There are still a few training course places remaining, but registrations will close on January 11, 2010."
