BIFA YFN CPD The most recent event in the British International Freight Association’s programme of activities for its Young Forwarder Network (YFN) was the first to be accredited for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Guest speaker, PC Matthew Bate gave a presentation to YFN members about how NaVCIS is working with the logistics community to combat international vehicle crime.

BIFA member services director, Carl Hobbis, who has management responsibility for the trade association’s training and development services and had a key role in the creation of the YFN in 2019, said: “Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the term used to describe the learning activities in which professionals engage to develop and enhance their abilities.

“There is an increasing expectation and desire from BIFA members and their employees to undertake CPD regardless of career level, job role and responsibilities.

“There have been over 125 events since the YFN’s inception, ranging from the educational, such as presentations on specific aspects of the freight and logistics industry.

“Our ambition has always been to add a professional touch by fitting some of them to the CPD structure and guidelines, including specific learning objectives.

“This means that BIFA can now display the certified CPD logo on all approved events and CPD attendance certificates can be issued to delegates for their own CPD purposes.

Hobbis concludes: “Hopefully, this accreditation will incentivise BIFA members to encourage more of their younger staff to participate in the YFN and attend its events around the country. YFN events, which are all free to BIFA members, have always provided learning experiences and the knowledge participants gain gets brought back to their businesses.”
