All of our public courses listed can be tailored to fit the requirements of companies involved in high tech industries and extended to include the key international trade areas you need to know about.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       We have trained experienced specialists in the area of tariff classification, using customs duty relief procedures, export licensing controlled movements including knowing if your goods are dual-use controlled or not and the difficulties involved in obtaining end-user certificates, understanding if you are captured by the USA re-export regulations such as ITAR or EAR restrictions and licensing issues, and how to use SPIRE.

On-line training courses and e-learning

Although we have a number of on-line international trade training courses for sale publically on our website our main area of on-line training is creating bespoke in-company training solutions which enables businesses to create their own e-learning training packages in bite-sized chunks – what we call SPOTLIGHTS – lasting between 1-2 hours per session. These SPOTLIGHTS can cover standard topics (as listed above) but the main advantage of this type of training solution is that we can ensure SPOTLIGHTS are written (and kept up-to-date) specifically covering what your business needs.

We suggest considering 4 standards for training in international trade matters:

  • Bronze: Awareness level training
  • Silver: Intermediate level training
  • Gold: Advance training
  • Platinum: Advanced training and professional

Therefore, we are able to offer Distance Learning courses for all areas of international trade and customs compliance, some topics already exists other may have to be developed to make them in-company specific. Distance Learning can be via our on-line training portal which can be used on an individual basis (cost of between £35.00 – £65.00 per person/ per session) or as a corporate designed package administered either by S&H or by you. Alternatively we can organise bespoke interactive webinars, generally up to 2 hour long, to cover bite-sized chunks of information. This can be supported, if required, by the use of our assessment programmes.
