Core Customs Skills Workshops

Core Customs Skills Workshops

The Core Customs Skills Workshops were created to offer companies of all sizes practical, accessible and reliable customs skills training for their teams. The goal is not only to help your company become more compliant but, most of all, to be able to minimise your duty bill.

The Workshops upskill in-house customs practitioners of all levels of experience – from beginners to advanced. Existing staff are trained to deal with the majority of future classification or origin questions in-house, without the need to pay for external advisors.

For the equivalent cost as to having a customs consultant classify or determine origin of just one or two products you or your staff can obtain training in these core customs skills.

What makes us different?

We teach you what you need to know. We make the course relevant to each participant’s day-to-day work with follow-up on points specifically related to their own workplace. It’s the only course on the market that offers an option for a one-to-one follow up session – we want to make sure we’ve answered all your specific questions.

We provide an in-depth and topical coverage in a relaxed but professional development atmosphere.

Finally, the workshops are delivered by a globally recognised coach who has developed and delivered customs courses for many private sector clients, UK Government Departments, United Nation’s agency and Universities.

Key features and learning outcomes
  • Follow up consultations: the only courses on the market that offer an opportunity for a one-to-one follow-up to ensure that all your questions have been answered.
