Who is this course suitable for?

For any delegates that have previously attended Understanding Export & Export documentation this course would follow on perfectly.

It is also suitable for those working in an Export environment and wants to grow their knowledge in more detail on the procedures of Customs compliance

The course would also suit the more experienced of staff looking for a refresher. With the changes Brexit has brought, this course is suitable for those looking to update their knowledge on Customs documentation.

What does the delegate gain?

Providing the delegate completes and passes the short assessment questions sent to them at the end of the course, (delegates have a week to complete this) the course gains them 1 module towards the Foundation award in International trade – a nationally recognised qualification issued from the British Chambers of commerce.

To gain the foundation award, each delegate must attend and pass a total of 6 modules from the 11 BCC accredited modules.

There are 8 courses to choose from in total. 

As well as the opportunity to gain this achievement, the delegate will take away with them invaluable skills and knowledge to implement in their role within their company.
