No matter what level you are at, our courses will give you the skills and expertise you need to gain a competitive advantage in the challenging and complex world of export, import and international trade.

Our suite of training courses are specially designed to offer progression opportunities, enabling you to build upon your knowledge, experience and skills. Our new digital badge program enables you to share your success as you progress through the courses.

Not sure which course is best for your needs? Complete our Training Needs Analysis form and we will recommend the most suitable and cost-effective training solution for you.

The government has announced that from early December 2018 businesses will be able to apply for grant funding towards training that helps them to complete customs declarations. The Institute provides several training courses that this grant funding will be applicable against. Find out more here.

As part of our recent efforts to modernise our training courses, we no longer provide a print-out of slides but instead provide workbooks for our attendees to make their own notes.

Not only is this better for the environment, but it is proven to increase the engagement and learning experience for delegates.

After the event attendees will be sent a link to download the slides from the course.
