Accredited Trade Training

Wirral Chamber of Commerce will be looking to run a series of Accredited Export Training Courses during 2018.

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 , 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 include:

Understanding Exporting: 

Export Documentation and Incoterms:

Methods of Payment and Letters of Credit:

Agents and Distributors:

Inward and Outward Processing:

Preference of Origin Rules Explained:

Import Procedures and Customs Audit Procedures:

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.
