Shipping Training for shipping professionals, brokers, importers, exporters...
Accredited Qualifications COAST (Commercial Overseas and Shipping Training) Introduction – Level 2 This qualification is designed to introduce you to selected key concepts of international trade and the shipping process (i.e. importing and exporting, shipping documentation, methods of payment, the roles of the different parties involved and basic shipping law), and to help you develop learning skills, which will provide a sound basis for further work. The course will give you an opportunity, whatever your plans, to learn ways of thinking that allow better understanding of shipping and the shipping process as a whole. The qualification materials have been produced with the needs of new learners in mind. They assume no special knowledge and no experience of studying. Taking examples from every aspect of the shipping process, they enable you to build a picture of how shipping works and how different jobs in the industry connect together to make up the whole shipping process. ENTRY REQUIREMENTS: There are no entry requirements. STARTING DATES: This course runs three times a year, starting in January, April and September, and it is delivered over a six month period. ASSESMENT: Examinations are optional, but are required if you wish to achieve the full COAST Level 2 Qualification. By sitting an online examination you will achieve the COAST Level 2 Certificate. By sitting an invigilated paper-based exam at one of the registered centres (contact us for details) you will achieve the COAST Level 2 Diploma. SYLLABUS
