MY Export Hub

The BCC now has ten nationally accredited core courses. Together, these form an export curriculum that provides invaluable basic skills for small and large companies alike. Candidates must demonstrate knowledge of the subject and their performance will be marked by external examiners on the completion of each module. Successful candidates will receive a certificate; completing six or more courses will result in the candidate achieving a nationally recognised Foundation Award in Exporting. These courses are suitable for both experienced exporters and those with no previous knowledge of exporting.

Customs Procedures and international documentation

This course would follow on nicely from delegates who have already sat Understanding Export & Export documentation.

It would also suit those who work in an Export environment and want to expand their knowledge on Export and Customs procedures, and compliance requirements so they can apply this to their working role.

It would also suit the individual who has vast experience but looking to refresh their knowledge.

It is worth 1 credit towards gaining the foundation award in International trade.
