President David Robillard networking with CanCham membersStarting in January, 2014, we’ve officially formed a partnership with the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico (CanChammx) to offer Chamber members the opportunity to start building practical global business credentials using our self-led, online FITTskills courses.

“Personally I´ve been associated with FITT for 20 years, starting from the time I was an instructor and program designer,” says David Robillard, President of the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Mexico. “Since that time, FITT has become Canada´s premiere institute for international trade training. CanChammx is pleased to be associated with FITT, and I am sure many of our members will benefit from the opportunity to participate in the FITTskills program.”
