Programme overview

Ireland has a proven track record in the growth of Global Goods exports. This Level 7 programme was created to provide the participants with the necessary skills, knowledge and competencies to become highly effective in the Global Trade Industry.

Since many Irish businesses across a variety of sectors rely on global trade, they need to ensure that their operations have solid global trade compliance. To remain competitive, companies must have a comprehensive understanding of the laws and regulations which govern their imports and exports. Global Trade compliance is the process and system of understanding and adhering to the laws and regulations controlling the export and import of goods, products, information and technology between the Ireland and other countries. In recent times the area of Global Trade Compliance has become a critical issue for many Irish companies for a number of reasons but, specifically the re-introduction of borders and Brexit.
