WCO launches its online academy for the trade community
The brand new WCO e-learning portal aimed at building the Customs skills of trade professionals is now live.
Courses currently address the following topics:
- Harmonized System (five sector specific courses)
- Agriculture & Agrifood
- Industry & Construction
- Art & Jewellery
- WCO Data Model (two courses)
- Customs Valuation (two courses)
- Valuation concepts and transaction value
- Advanced valuation methods
More courses will be added in the coming months. Even though the courses are currently available in English and French only, more languages will be available in the future.
Learners can either take standalone online courses, or purchase complete solutions (bundles), which include access to the online courses on their topics of interest, the purchase of corresponding publications, and access to online tools such as the Harmonized System Database.
Moreover, companies wishing to upskill the knowledge of more than one of their workers, or Universities wishing to offer access to the courses to their students, can benefit from customized solutions.
Last but not least, professionals interested in contributing to the development of the courses by providing feedback can join the WCO Academy’s Test Group. They will be given free access to courses now under development and discount coupons for future purchases.
