Who is this course suitable for?

If you have competed our beginners guide in import and export courses, this would be a great follow on as the next level up.

Our specialised full day course provides a detailed overview of both import and export, all elements that are involved and a summary of what paperwork is needed to be able to complete procedures in a smooth manner. 

If you haven’t completed a beginner’s course previously, but have an insight on the subjects, it would also suit those looking for a fact based course, to expand on existing knowledge of both topics combined.

What happens on the course and what is taught?

Attendees will learn about the following:

Export Process

  • The Enquiry, Incoterms® 2020, Insurance, Methods of Payment, Licences & Limitations, Commodity Codes, Origin of the Goods
  • Quotation, Order Acknowledgment & Pro Forma Invoice
  • Packing – Guidelines and Rules
  • Shipping Documents
  • Booking Freight and Transport Documentation
  • Proof of Export - Evidential Requirements

Import Process

There is no exam at the end of this session, but attendees will keep the slides provided.

After the course ends, attendees are encouraged to consider joining the next level of import and export courses to gain a deeper understanding of each element, which will further enhance their role within an import and / or export company.
