NATIONAL COURSE CODE TLI50316 - 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 by the CBFCA over two semesters (12 months) and includes 9 core units of study and 3 electives.

The Diploma of International Freight Forwarding (provided it is delivered by the CBFCA) 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 the CBFCA are automatically eligible to receive the globally recognised FIATA Diploma, the gold standard worldwide. 

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