International Trade Courses

The Chamber runs a rolling programme of training courses that culminate in the nationally-recognised Foundation Award in International Trade.

The International Trade Skills Training Programme has been designed to complement the government’s ‘Get Britain Exporting’ agenda and focuses on improving the skills and competences of employees who complete export documentation within their role.

The regular training courses provide the knowledge to assist with your international trade activities. Currently, all courses will take place online via Zoom.
