Distance-learning in foreign trade
Customs, export controls & value-added tax

A distance-learning course is ideal for those who cannot attend a seminar owing to work commitments but still need to improve their skills in customs, export controls or VAT. This form of training allows you to acquire knowledge through part-time study. Distance-learning courses offer you a solid basis for mastering foreign trade transactions correctly and successfully. The AWA offers three distance-learning courses: Customs Practice, Export Controls and VAT. All three are certified by the National Centre for Distance- Learning in Germany. In the distance-learning courses, we are increasingly focusing on e-learning in the form of webinars and online learning as well as chat facilities with the trainers and other participants.
