Distance Learning Course delivered on-line Once registered on the course candidates can access the learning material in their own time or choose to receive a daily ‘bitesize’ learning chunk. When the course and case studies have been completed the candidate applies to BIFA for the exam package which will be forwarded to an independent expert for marking.

Course Objectives:

  • To introduce at a basic level some of the key features of the legal framework within which freight service providers operate
  • To provide learning material that teaches freight service providers the responsibilities of the customer and the freight forwarder in the contract to arrange the transport of goods

  • To introduce the various international conventions governing the movement of cargo by road, sea, rail and air
  • To introduce the subject of Marine and Liability Insurance and how to deal with claims

The course is split into three topic areas:
