I have looked at quite a few international trade courses but I must say ABTS stood out the most and I did not hesitate in culling ABTS!Alan has been a great mentor along the way not hesitating to answer my questions no matter how many times I have asked. If there is an import/export course that you want to pursue then do not hesitate to pick ABTS as your gateway to international trade. I promise you will not be disappointed!
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.
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.
