For the second year in a row, the World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO), a Core Partner of the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), comes to Latin America with the WFLO Institute, to offer one of the most complete educational programs in the cold chain industry.
The Institute will be held June 22-24, 2015 at the Hilton Panama Hotel in Panama City, Panama. This educational program is a three-day training event where 2014’s participants return for a Year 2 curriculum and a new group of Year 1 “students” will begin what is a three-year program to complete.
“We had a strong level of support last year during our initial launch of this program,” said Debbie Corado, regional director, Latin America for GCCA. “We are introducing our Year 2 curriculum this year, and we roll out Year 3 next year.”
The WFLO Institute Latin America features more than 40 classes taught by experts in a range of competencies including cold chain management, customer service, food safety, labor issues, warehouse and transportation operations, and career and personal development. In addition, the Year 1 students will tour one of the largest warehouse complexes in Panama, Galores Group; and the students from the second year program will visit facilities from Balboa Port. Both groups will obtain practical insight into modern temperature-controlled facilities daily operations.
This program will allow students to carry out activities with experts, give feedback from the courses, hear stories and experiences from each participant, and make future connections with industry professionals. The program is divided into six modules: Cold Chain Management, Customer Service, Employment Safety, Food Safety, Warehouse Operations, and Personal and Professional Development.
