The British International Freight Association (BIFA), the trade association for UK freight forwarding and logistics companies, has announced that both of its Customs-related training courses now have official Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accreditation.
CPD accreditation is one of the highest standards for both academic and practical qualifications, ensuring teaching and learning remain up to date.
Carl Hobbis, BIFA’s training development manager commented: “Getting your courses CPD accredited to prove that they have a structured, practical and methodical approach is essential.
“It indicates to employers and HR practitioners that the courses have reached a certain standard. It gives them confidence that by sending their staff on one of our courses those employees will be obtaining and developing the skills to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.
“As you would expect, we have seen a massive surge in Customs training enquiries so to have both courses accredited is fantastic news. We also have our one-day Introduction to Import and Export course accredited and will also have accreditation for all apprentice activities as well, such as behind-the-scene tours and networking events.”
