In 2007, PTI became functional and the first 3 batches of PIFFA-FIATA Diploma Course were conducted in the premises of KPT Staff College. In view of difficulties experienced in securing required facilities from KPT and exorbitant rental demand, urgent need was felt to have PIFFA’s own venue to conduct Diploma Course.
A modest office space centrally located in Kashif Centre was secured and converted into classroom with all amenities like air-conditioning, multimedia, individual desks for course participants etc. to provide comfortable environment.
However, on 27th July 2009, in a befitting ceremony the PIFFA TRAINING INSTITUTE was inaugurated by Mr. Babar Badat, the Founder Chairman PIFFA, Vice President FIATA and Member of FIATA’s Advisory Board on Vocational Training.
The classes of 4th batch commenced from July 27, 2009. Mr. Babar Badat and Mr. Khalid Mir ex-Convener Standing Committee on Training & Education briefly addressed the course participants. Mr. Babar Badat sharing his vast experiences gave a broad spectrum of opportunities available to freight forwarding industry to tap by way of transit trade with Central Asia, Afghanistan and China. His words of advice and experience were loudly applauded by the audience.
Since then, PTI has gained some ground and is currently running 21 and 22 Batches of PIFFA- FIATA Diploma in its own purpose built Training Institute co-located with PIFFA Secretariat at 257-C, Block-6, P.E.C.H.S. Karachi-75400, Pakistan.
