FIATA accredits CRFFN’s supply chain diploma programme

The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) has accredited the Higher Diploma in Supply Chain Management programme of the Council for the Regulation of Freight Forwarding in Nigeria (CRFFN).
CRFFN Head, Corporate Affairs, Uromta Chinyere, who disclosed this in a press release sent to SHIPS & PORTS DAILYon Friday, said the accreditation certificate for the programme was handed over to CRFFN Registrar, Sir Mike Jukwe, at a session of the FIATA advisory board on vocational training in Singapore last week.
“It would be recalled that earlier in the week, the CRFFN Registrar, Sir Mike Jukwe, had successfully defended Nigeria/CRFFN’s submission to FIATA for the accreditation of the Higher Diploma in supply chain Management in the ongoing FIATA World Congress in Singapore.“Nigeria has therefore become one of the three African Countries to record this milestone. Other countries that scaled through were Egypt and South Africa,” Uromta stated.

She said the council’s Professional Diploma in freight forwarding and supply chain management had in October last year, been accredited by the global body.
Uromta also disclosed that the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) has granted approval to CRFFN to conduct FIATA Diploma programmes in Nigeria.
“These achievements have marked a new dawn in the freight forwarding sector in the country as one of the core mandates of CRFFN of ensuring professionalism through education and training of the people of the industry is being actualized,” she said.
