"Train-the-Trainer" course in Pakistan
The FIATA TOT programme was organised at Karachi in December 2006, which was hosted by Pakistan International Freight Forwarders Association (PIFFA). There was a demand for the programme and PIFFA in consultation with FIATA pre-qualified 27 resource persons from the freight forwarding and logistics industry as well as from other related industries like Insurance, law and Port Authorities. At the end of the course a six months process of modules development was started which commenced in January 2007 and is almost ready for submission for validation in early August 2007. PIFFA with guidance from FIATA has commenced a programme to conduct the first FIATA Diploma Course in Pakistan planned for August 2007, the course delivery is expected to be completed in six months. The programme will greatly benefit Pakistan's Freight Forwarding & Logistics industry to upgrade its human resource pool and introduce modern practices in its trading environment.

"The Ghana TOT program took place in August 2005. It has enabled The Ghana Institute of Freight Forwarders to set up its training program with a core of 22 resource persons trained through the program. Course material provided at the course has been updated to reflect local industry environment. Much of the material updating was carried out by members of the TOT team. Initial six-months training program was started in May 2006 with 30 participants. Response has been quite heavy with requests for training coming from other parts of the region. Second intake increased to 50 at beginning of August 2006. Official inauguration of training program is planned for 13th September 2006."
