Belfast Training - International Trade & Customs Procedures

Belfast Training Events - International Trade & Customs. Practical and relevant export training and import training which aims to enhance the export and import performance and customs compliance levels of businesses. Look at our wide range of international trade training and customs compliance topics on offer as public courses – all delivered by experienced, accredited & specialist tutors.

"Delegates are quick to appreciate that the courses and workshops are not “text book”, classroom material but provide real answers to real problems – as well as giving “insider” tips and good cost saving and compliance advice."

Strong & Herd LLP (S&H LLP) was formed in 1995 and has become a key player in export and import training. Many companies, large and small, have sent delegates to S&H LLP courses and workshops, and training by S&H LLP has become an integral part of these companies’ training programmes. All training courses are on international trade topics and delivered by professional tutors who have current practical experience in these areas. We limit the numbers of attendees to ensure the events give time for individual attention and provide a fun and interactive learning environment.  From general courses for beginners on to more advanced training in the areas of export procedures, import customs formalities and letters of credit/ finance areas S&H is the one to choose.
