International Trade Operations and Procedures (ITOPS) Training September

The ITOPS qualification is a practical and relevant qualification designed to prove that candidates have the necessary skills to accurately operate the administration procedures in an international trade administration environment. This four day course is delivered in partnership with East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) and Fidelitas Training.

Delegates will learn how to avoid costly mistakes and improve their international trade procedures. Some previous delegates have saved their employers thousands of pounds. Successful candidates will be awarded the ITOPS Qualification.

The course is suitable for anyone employed in an international trade environment – whether that of a manufacturer/supplier or freight forwarder.

Course Duration and Date

The course consists of four days:

Day 1: 14th September 2021
Day 2: 7th October 2021
Day 3: 19th October 2021
Day 4: 4th November 2021

Course Delivery

ITOPS is a recognised International Trade Qualification covering the main elements of Export Administration. The course runs over four separate workshops, followed by an assessment. This course is accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce and successful candidates will receive the BCC Foundation Award in International Trade.

The course covers the five main elements of export administration:

– Administration Procedures
– Export Documentation
– Customs and Excise and other legal requirements
– Export Payments
– Dispatch and Shipping

Delegates attend four formal training workshops. A formal assessment takes place approximately one month after the tuition ends. The evidence is then Internally Verified by an experienced assessor at the Chamber who decides if the required standards have been met and provide you with a certificate if you have passed.

Candidates have the opportunity to attend an airport visit at the DHL East Midlands Hub. Although optional, the feedback from this visit has proved that the experience is an invaluable part of the qualification.

The price includes training for four workshops, course folders and printed notes, full trainer support during the course of the programme, final assessment day, portfolio assessment and verification. Successful candidates also receive the BCC Foundation Award in International Trade.

Testimonials

“The ITOPS course has given me the skills to enable me to follow the administration procedures and fulfil the legal requirements to successfully export our manufactured goods. I enjoyed the style of the course which was a combination of ‘face to face’ workshops, visits to forwarders and independent learning relevant to my job.

“With the current uncertainties of our future within the EU and the impact this will have on businesses who export goods I would certainly recommend this training.”
