An Introduction to Exporting
The Introduction to Exporting course covers all the basic key areas that a new exporter would need to become a much more effective exporter. The course will explain the requirements for documentation, what content is required and why? Plus an overview of country of origin, Incoterms and what you need to keep as proof of export for potential audits.
Where applicable, the course will explain any cost implication so that delegates not only understand why costs are applied to certain documents and processes, but how to potentially allocate these costs to maintain profit.
Delegates attending this course will receive 6 months' free support from the tutor.
