PPG adds ProjectPitch exercise to course agenda

The Project Professionals Group (PPG) has boosted the agenda of its project cargo forwarding training course, which will be held at the Antwerp XL exhibition in April 2020.

Course co-ordinator Kevin Stephens said the training day format will culminate with a comprehensive group exercise developed by the industry – ProjectPitch.

He added: “This one-day masterclass differs from other training formats in that it is very interactive and not delivered in a static monotone format.

“Our masterclass covers a number of key training modules and has the additional and unique benefit of the ProjectPitch exercise that tests understanding of the key aspects of successfully managing the transportation of challenging cargoes to meet the needs of clients, shippers and ship owners.”

ProjectPitch, according to Stephens, has been designed to incorporate all the key ideas from PPG’s project forwarding certificate training course modules.

Those that register for the course before February 29, 2020 will receive a 10 percent discount that includes a one-day Antwerp XL exhibition hall pass.
