International Trade Training Programme

Ensuring your business is ready for every outcome

Devon Chamber of Commerce is your business’ most important source of international trade advice and support.  To further support those trading internationally, or wanting to trade internationally, Devon Chamber of Commerce will again be running a series of special skills and international trade training courses, accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) that cover the critical steps for any new or existing international trade.  Our 2018 courses were often fully booked.  The 2019 programme has been updated and new courses added to reflect current international trade practices. We will be constantly updating courses over the year taking into account any changes to processes.

Training your staff to deliver your products or services right first time, every time, will lower your costs and improve the experience you deliver to your customers.

Choosing a great export training provider who understands about making a profit internationally can really help your company take off in your export markets. Combined with great quality and competitive prices, it makes our courses hard to beat.

Each course passed will be certificated and success in all six courses will lead to a Foundation Award in International Trade, certified by BCC, equivalent to an NVQ2 qualification.

The people who attend the courses include owner/proprietors of small businesses that manage their own import and export services, through to employees working in import/export departments in larger organisations. Some attend all the courses, others just attend those relevant to their role.
