TLI50119 - Diploma of International Freight Forwarding

The Diploma of International Freight Forwarding was created in recognition of the huge gap in the provision of structured training that existed in the international freight forwarding sector, a sector that up until now did not have a course specifically created for it at this level. This course is offered online by the International Trade and Logistics College (RTO Code 30772) over two semesters (12 months) and includes 10 core units of study and 2 elective units.

The Diploma of International Freight Forwarding (provided it is delivered by IFCBAA) is recognised by FIATA (the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations) as the pre-requisite for the awarding of the prestigious FIATA Diploma. Students who complete the Diploma with IFCBAA are automatically eligible to receive the globally recognised FIATA Diploma, the gold standard worldwide. 

As a student of the IFCBAA you are also eligible for free student membership of the IFCBAA (normally $120.00 to non-IFCBAA students).

As a graduate of IFCBAA's Diploma of International Freight Forwarding, you will have the most highly respected credentials for international freight forwarders. Take the step up today!
