Training Courses

The Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce delivers a widespread portfolio of training, including documentation, cultural awareness and health and safety, including new courses accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), leading to a special qualification.  

The courses are more detailed and anyone who completes six of the package of ten accredited courses will be rewarded with the equivalent of an NVQ (National Vocational Qualification), which the Chamber believes will enable businesses to dramatically upskill their staff on global issues.

The full range of courses cover everything from customs procedures  to incoterms, a set of commercial  terms which define where the responsibility of the exporter ends and that of the buyer begins.

In addition, there are a number of language and cultural awareness courses – for example, there will be one covering the basics of Mandarin, which is obviously aimed at those businesses who want to trade with the Chinese. The course will deliver enough information to help businesses get through their initial meetings with prospective Chinese clients.

In addition, the Chamber will be offering bespoke language and cultural awareness courses, tailored to whatever a business needs.

Access to funding

We would like to draw your attention to the window of opportunity that exists to potentially obtain funding for the cost of courses on import, export or customs that you would like to attend. Please do follow the link:

Have a look through the criteria as it is well worth submitting a claim because you are asking to upskill in an area of customs procedures. You have until the 31JAN19 or until the funding has been exhausted. You could also take advantage of the IT equipment grant.
