Who Should Attend
This course is suitable for administrators, managers, directors, and owners of businesses who want to grow through international trade. It will be valuable for companies who are already exporting reactively so they can ensure they have the correct processes in place and are meeting their compliance obligations. The course is valuable for both newcomers wanting an introduction and overview, and experienced staff needing a refresher on current requirements.
The trainer will use oral and visual presentation, reference to fictitious and real examples and participatory exercises to illustrate course content. The delegates will receive copies of the presentation on which notes can be made together with a workbook for future reference.
