Frequently asked questions

How long do I have to complete a course?

FITTskills courses are completed over 3 months. Your assessment deadline will be 3 calendar months after the date you register.

The courses and workshops are self-paced, so the time required will vary from person to person depending on how you study, your pre-existing knowledge of the course or workshop material, and other factors. We generally estimate it will take 30-45 hours to complete a course if you are completely new to international trade, or closer to 15-20 hours if you already have 2 or more years of experience.

Do I get a certificate once I successfully complete the course?

We recognize your development in our FITTskills program with the following global trade credentials:

Can I take specific modules instead of the whole course?

The FITTskills workshops cover the same material as the FITTskills courses, but are divided into smaller sections (modules) for those interested in completing specific sections on their own or to focus on learning the material one topic at a time.

Can I extend the course beyond 3 months?

Yes. You can receive up to three 30-day deferrals for a single course or workshop. Your first deferral for a specific course or workshop will be complimentary, and a second or third deferral for that same course will be $50 each plus applicable taxes. For your first complimentary deferral, please send an email to info@fitt.ca. For your second or third deferrals for a specific course or workshop, please use the Assessment Deferral Request form.

Can I take the final exam more than once?

You are eligible to re-write a failed FITTskills assessment within 90 days of the original assessment date. There is no limit to the number of times an assessment can be re-written. However, each re-write must take place within 90 days of the previous re-written assessment deadline, and there is a fee of $100 plus applicable taxes per re-write. You can request to re-take an assessment by filling out an Assessment Registration Form.

Is there a refund policy?

A refund, minus a course/workshop withdrawal processing fee, may be granted if you formally request a refund from a course/workshop within 7 days after the registration date, provided the course/workshop assessment is deemed not to have been written. No refund will be issued if you withdraw more than 7 days after your registration date.

Course/Workshop Withdrawal Processing Fee:

The withdrawal processing fee is equivalent to 30% of the net amount paid per course/workshop. The net amount paid is calculated as the list price minus any applicable discount.

To Request a Refund:

Send an email to info@fitt.ca stating your full name, course/workshop title, date of registration, and reason for refund request.

Every course I completed would give me insight into new areas of the business, including global supply chain management. The training gave me a window into to the issues facing our logistics group…
