What are the main activities and targets of the FIATA Foundation?
The FIATA Foundation provides "Train-the-Trainer" courses to Association Members, which means to train those who will train their member staff in future.
The Foundation will delegate a small team of professional trainers to countries which have limited or no resources to implement a qualified training structure. These courses of about two weeks will provide knowledge of the profession, based on the "FIATA Minimum Standards (FMST)" and some basic instruction on how to teach.
The main target of the Foundation is to encourage the Association Members in setting up an efficient and sustainable training organisation. After a certain period of time they should be able to submit the training material which has been developed by them to the "Advisory Body Vocational Training (ABVT)" for validation. This means that those Associations which have successfully validated their programmes can offer courses leading to the FIATA Diploma in Freight Forwarding.
