National Certificate in Freight Forwarding (Intermediate)
NZQF Level 3

About the course

The National Certificate in International Freight Forwarding (Intermediate) [Ref: 1684] is an intermediate level qualification for people working, or intending to work, in the international freight forwarding industry.

The qualification recognises knowledge of key sector groups and compliance agencies; legislation, documentation requirements and industry specific terminology; world geography, and the distribution environment. People who have achieved this qualification will have knowledge and skills related to essential business skills, including the creation of spreadsheets and reports; and be able to carry out internal and external customer service.

The compulsory component of the qualification recognises the underpinning skills, knowledge and competence expected of freight forwarders.

The elective set allows for programmes to be developed to suit both provider and workplace training applications. Programmes may include instruction in customer service, self-management and presentation skills, or freight forwarding topics. Companies that offer an international air express service can also use the elective to offer career development and training for their freight forwarding staff.

The qualification is designed to stand alone but has some shared credits with the National Certificate in Distribution (Level 2) [Ref: 0990]; and may appeal to people coming from the wider distribution and logistics sector. The qualification has also been designed to provide a pathway to the National Certificate in Freight Forwarding (Advanced) (Level 4) [Ref: 1685].
