Graham Horsler, one of Gerson Relocation’s longest serving and most experienced Move Managers returned from a recent FIDI training course in Belgium exhausted but very happy having achieved the Top Student Award. No mean feat considering the course was attended by almost thirty other students, representing professional moving companies from over 20 countries
FIDI is the largest global alliance of independent quality international removal companies and represents the interests of companies specialising in international removals. FIDI has 525 members in 102 countries employing over 26,000 staff and regularly conducts training programmes through its FIDI Academy
Graham’s course ran over six days and covered every aspect of the international moving process from the first enquiry through planning, costing, managing the move; and following through until satisfactory completion.
Field visits to Brussels Airport, the Port of Antwerp, also a mover’s warehouse and both air and sea freight forwarders facilities were also undertaken.
The course involved four separate examinations during the week based on General Knowledge of the industry, Relocations by Seafreight, Relocations by Airfreight and finally a two and a half hour exam based on a hypothetical move involving every aspect of a relocation; seafreight, airfreight, insurance, timing factors and much more!
Graham was successful in obtaining his diploma in “Essentials in International Moving” and also obtained the highest marks on the course receiving the highly sought after and prestigious “Top Student Award”
Niall Mackay, Gerson Relocation’s Managing Director comments; “Graham’s success is fitting tribute to his hard work, professionalism, and deep industry knowledge. I am delighted for him !”
