Hands On Maritime Easy As ABS
Hands On Maritime
     ABS Consulting, which offers some excellent training courses in Florida, announced the 6th edition of their Maritime Logistics Training Course. It takes place at the Residence Inn by Marriott, Miramar, Florida, on April 27-28, 2016.
     In 2014, Albert Saphir (above) and Joe Espinosa created this 2-day training course based on industry requests for practical training and education. They launched the first course in February 2014; since then, all iterations of the course have sold out!
     “Our content is just about unchanged from the previous editions as the overall format has been very well received by the attendees.
     “We issue completion certificates and our course has been approved for 12 continued education credits by the NCBFAA/NEI, CSCMP, ISM, and APICS for their respective certifications,” Albert Saphir said.
     Albert Saphir told FT that they wanted to develop a differentiated educational program that provides hands on practical and useful information from industry veterans; they did not want to create just another industry conference.
     For that reason, attendance at each course is limited to a small cadre of participants—around two dozen people—to allow for active Q&A and extended interaction between attendees.
     “The attendee profile of the past courses combined looks like this:
       50 percent of attendees were from South Florida, 50 percent from elsewhere in the USA or even foreign countries (Mexico and Jamaica)
       50 percent of attendees worked for beneficial cargo owners (manufacturers, importers, exporters, cruise lines, and trading companies)
       30 percent of attendees worked for freight forwarders, NVOCCs, ocean carriers, or airlines
       20 percent of attendees came from other international trade services companies and local colleges
     “The balance between ‘experienced’ to ‘fairly new to the industry’ was also about 50/50 overall, which was a great testament to the quality of the program and the diverse audience it is able to address.”
     - NCBFAA/NEI for 12.5 CE CES/CCS
     - ISM for 12 CEH
     - CSCMP 12 CEU SCPro Certification credits
