International Trade Training Programme

To further support those trading internationally or wanting to trade internationally. Devon & Plymouth Chamber of Commerce run 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. We will be constantly updating the courses during 2019, taking into account any changes to the Export/Import processes that arise from Brexit.

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

Training provided by local independent company, International Trade Matters.
