Innovative training fast-tracks project cargo skills

A new innovative project cargo training course has been specially designed for companies seeking to fast-track the skills and knowledge of talented employees that will improve bottom line performance.

Mumbai has been selected as the venue for the first International Project Forwarding Education Program running from January 28-29, 2009, because of its central location for international participants. The two-day course has been developed at the request of freight forwarding professionals following concerns about the critical international skills shortage in the supply chain and logistics industry.

International heavy lift cargo specialists, Project Professional Group, highlighted the need for practical, industry-specific, short courses during their annual conference in Denmark.

PPG General Manager Kevin Stephens said members had recognized that the most valuable resource of their organization was its people who would benefit from the fast tracking of skills and knowledge.

Mr Stephens said the training represented a very worthwhile investment of $US1500 per person, and was not just open to PPG members but other businesses and organizations who wanted to add value through skills training that otherwise could take many years to acquire.

Program topics covered key areas and were broken up into eight easy-absorbed modules that focused on practical training in industry best-practice that could be effectively applied in the workplace from day one.

“This is an innovative approach to training because it has been designed by industry professionals and focuses on face-to-face interaction in a workshop format. This will deliver an invaluable learning environment for participants through case studies that will improve skills and understanding that can be applied quickly and confidently when the student returns to the workplace and improve bottom line performance,” Mr Stephens said.

Principal instructor Kevin Stephens has 40 years of international industry experience that provides a wealth of knowledge covering all aspects of the supply chain, particularly project forwarding, ship-broking, chartering and contract management activities.

Business communication consultant Rodger Hall has taught university students and managers essential business communication skills that help persuade, promote, instruct and explain.

Following the completion of the course, a Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management will be presented.

A course outline and further information is available on request to Kevin Stephens
