A training course to boost the skills of African project forwarders will be held during the Breakbulk Africa Congress in February.

A project management course held in conjunction with the Breakbulk Africa Congress in Johannesburg in February, 2015, is specifically designed to meet the needs of African logistics businesses handling complex heavy-lift transportations.
The ISO-accredited Certificate in Project Cargo Management professional development course is scheduled for 16-17 February as part of the education program during the Congress at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Course trainers include Kevin Stephens, the founder and general manager of project forwarding network, the Project Professionals Group, and business communication educator Rodger Hall.
Mr Stephens said the training course was timely as Africa geared up for large projects such as new railways, ports and airports and the continuing expansion of the energy sector.
Mr Stephens said the training course modules focused on up-skilling attendees to confidently manage multi-model cargo transportation, and refresh their thinking about project forwarding requirements.
Course presentations also target business writing and presentation skills to improve project communications with clients and colleagues.
“This course is ideal for African companies wanting to demonstrate to clients that they have the capabilities to successfully transport high value cargos that require complex logistics solutions,” Mr Stephens said.
“Project cargo clients want to know that their forwarders have the skills and knowledge to deliver on time and within budget. Completing the Certificate of Achievement in Project Cargo Management provides the knowledge to ensure potential pitfalls are understood and eliminated.”
