I was asked to give my tutor an in depth description of my job role and my course was then structured around this. I found every part of the course very relevant to my everyday working role.

The IoE Advanced Certificate in International Trade focuses on the practical aspects of international trade. On completion, students will have acquired and demonstrated a detailed knowledge of the principles, procedures and documentation of international trade.
The course has helped me to understand more about the legal and finance side of my job. My tutor and the student support team are always on the end of the phone if I need assistance with questions. Everyone is always very friendly when I call. Studying with Distance Learning College is enjoyable and easy especially with the course being broken down into manageable chunks.
