Public Training Courses

Public Training Courses

Strong & Herd LLP has practical and relevant export training and import training which aims to enhance the export and import performance and customs compliance levels of businesses. Look at our wide range of international trade training and customs compliance topics on offer as public courses – all delivered by experienced, accredited & specialist tutors. 

Strong & Herd LLP (S&H LLP) was formed in 1995 and has become a key player in export and import training. Many companies, large and small, have sent delegates to S&H LLP courses and workshops, and training by S&H LLP has become an integral part of these companies’ training programmes. All training courses are on international trade topics and delivered by professional tutors who have current practical experience in these areas. From general courses for beginners – such as our Export Essentials and Import Essentials – to courses dedicated to key important topics – such as the USA ITAR regulations, Inward Processing Relief (IP), the Incoterm ® rules (eg ExWorks, FOB, DDP), Origin and Preference rules – on to more advanced training in the areas of export procedures, import customs formalities and letters of credit/ finance areas S&H is the one to choose.

Delegates are quick to appreciate that the courses and workshops are not “text book”, classroom material but provide real answers to real problems – as well as giving “insider” tips and good cost saving and compliance advice. CLICK HERE Full list of courses run by Strong & Herd

Accredited to issue Continuous Professional Development Points (CPD)

S&H LLP have been accredited under the Continuous Professional Development programme (through the Institute of Export & International Trade) to issue CPD points on all relevant S&H training courses.  The number of CPD points is determined by the length of the course, how interactive it is, the number of training modules included, delegate activities and exercises and, of course, whether it is basic or more advanced.  S&H LLP are subject to annual audit by the accrediting body.  CPD points are earned by attending the training and will be shown on the training certificate issued after the event.  For more information on CPD points contact us
