The FIATA Diploma is the highest qualification of its holder, valid in more than 150 countries around the world, and is highly valued by both employers and employees. It is a personal diploma (awarded to the employee and not to the company), issued in Zurich, which guarantees that the student meets the FIATA requirements for transport professionals. In Lithuania, more than 100 freight forwarders hold this internationally recognised quality certificate. The FIATA diploma is only awarded after completing all 13 modules, passing the examinations for each module and writing a final thesis. Students can also study individual modules.
