Our Customs & Global Trade Summer School 2022 Programme

Customs Manager's staff enjoys keeping up with the rapidly developing field of customs and international commerce.

Our summer programme is now available in a digital version that allows you to study from the comfort of your own home or office. In addition to providing adequate opportunities for participants to ask questions and interact with trainers, we also assign homework and quizzes after each lecture to be completed the following week.
