Accredited Trade Training

Due to the success of the 2016 British Chamber of commerce Accredited Export Training Courses, Wirral Chamber of Commerce are pleased to announce that we are running this series again starting 10th October 2017.

These courses ensure that companies are well equipped to deal with the demands of international trade and provide participants with the opportunity to earn a Foundation Award in International Trade.

Our courses will suit anyone involved in importing and exporting goods, from owners of small businesses that manage their own import and exports, to employees working in import and export departments in larger organisations.

There are ten modules available, delivered via seven full day courses.  These modules cover every aspect of international trade, from Documentation, Letters of Credit and INCOTERMS through to Preference Rules of Origin and how to work with Agents and Distributors.  The seven full day courses are as follows:

Understanding Exporting:  Tuesday 10th October

Export Documentation and Incoterms: Tuesday 17th October

Methods of Payment and Letters of Credit: Tuesday 24th October

Agents and Distributors: Tuesday 31st October

Inward and Outward Processing: Tuesday 7th November

Preference of Origin Rules Explained: Tuesday 14th November

Import Procedures and Customs Audit Procedures: Tuesday 21st November

There is a course assessment for each module, which is taken on the day and submitted for independent marking by a BCC approved expert. A certificate is given for each successfully completed module and BCC will also recognise the achievement of completing 6 modules with a Foundation Award in International Trade - a recognised and respected qualification.

The full day courses are held at The Lauries, Claughton Road, Birkenhead and include morning and afternoon refreshments and lunch. 

To book a place on any of the courses or for further information, please contact Julie Knights or Janet McEneany on 0151 650 6940 or email
