Short Courses

We provide a comprehensive range of non-award training and professional development programs. Our programs are based on international best practice and involve the provision of education

to professionals across a range of disciplines, including customs administration, revenue and tax administration, law, border management and international trade.

Noting that vocational courses are run for agencies rather than individuals, please determine your agency’s needs and select accordingly. In some cases agencies may wish to amalgamate some courses e.g. Customs Control & Cargo Control.
