Customs Manager launches 2020 Training Programme


We have designed a brand-new programme for 2020 covering all essential elements of Customs & Global Trade, developing the professional, operational and even management competencies required by modern managers at a level right for you.


Every Year, a highlight in the calendar of Customs Manager's team is the launch of the new Customs & Global Trade Training Programme offering the latest and greatest information on trade topics that every customs manager and global trade professional needs to know. This year is no different. Students can look forward to twelve exciting months of study, twelve exciting C&GT topics and endless opportunities to learn and progress, no matter where you and how you want to study.


Designed by customs authorities & experts building core competencies

Like every year, our programme is based on the standards designed by customs officials and C&GT experts ensuring that throughout the year, we build the following competencies, essential for being a successful customs manager:

  1. professional (for example, dealing with operational risk, decision-making, analytical thinking, problem-solving, time management, written and oral communication and much more)

  2. operational (for example, tariff and classification, valuation, the origin of goods, free trade agreements, export controls [seperate path available], AEO and supply chain security and many more).

  3. managerial (for example entrepreneurship, negotiations, people / conflict / communication and process management).
