Simply put, many other courses are taught by teachers that haven’t the real-word, practical experience of importing and exporting. They teach much of the theory and how it “should work”.
Our course has been developed by Alan Bracken BA who ran his own freight forwarding company for many years and learnt how to import and export in the real-world with “hands on” experience. He learned the hard way, what the major pitfalls of importing and exporting are and ultimately, how not to lose money and be profitable. This is what you’ll learn.
I really recommend this online course. I enrolled as I've setup my own fashion brand (www.lovegangstore.com) and needed to know how to export my products around the world. The information is taught really well with animations and easy to understand. Methods of selling and negotiation techniques were very handy too. Well worth the money.
I enrolled in the ABTS course as I began exporting boxing equipment from the US to Europe. Got an awesome understanding of how to clear my goods through UK customs and letters of credit have really helped me as I knew nothing before. Not a guy that likes to study but this course was presented very well.
The online international trade course has been invaluable to me as an importer of cars to Europe. The course doesn't get into logistical theory but gave me practical lessons on various issues. I'm now well prepared for doing business with the UK no matter the Brexit outcome and have just subscribed to the Brexit Breakdown for more understanding of the impact Brexit and how I will export my cars to the UK.
This is a highly recommended course for people working or starting in International trade. Alan is an excellent tutor with knowledge about import and export issues. The course was 3 days part time on saturdays covering everything related to international trade. Great thing about Alan is his personal touch and examples from his vast experience. If you want to trade in import export this is a must. Alan ... you were superb in teaching.
The international trade course opened my mind to the many possibilities available to do business in the field, thanks to the practical knowledge Alan imparted. Understanding the different types of documentation needed to import or export was simplified. The free post advisory service is honestly gold! Thanks to this and the knowledge I have gained on the course (and still) I am setting up a commission agency. Whether you are new or not to IT, from my experience, Alan is very flexible and does very well to attend to individuals' needs and aspirations while covering the core literature.
I attended the 5 week international trade course and found it very informative. Alan was a great teacher who's methods were easily understood and well delivered. The additional support outside of the course was gratefully received. .
I've participated at the International Trade course of 5 weeks in London and it was really useful for me. Alan is an excellent teacher: always precise and easy to follow. He lets you understand difficult topics in easly manner with examples and his huge experience in the international trade. Lessons are intensive and well organised. Excellent course.
