CILT introduces Certificate in Customs Competency

20 April 2015/Categories: CILT, Industry News

In recognition of the growing need for professional standards in customs work throughout the global supply chain CILT has endorsed the Certificate in Customs Competency provided by Morley Consulting Training Limited.

Designed to give delegates the essential knowledge of customs procedures required to work in an operational role within an exporting, importing, transport or freight forwarding environment.   It covers the requirements in a practical and pragmatic way ensuring delegates know how to operate legally and how to gain the benefits available for their organisation and customers.

The course is taught by experienced industry professionals from a pragmatic and practical view point.   It aims to give delegates the knowledge and tools needed to fulfil a commercial customs role in any international supply chain efficiently and effectively, making full use of the available customs processes and procedures to obtain the best outcomes for their organisation and customers.  

Uniquely the emphasis is placed on understanding requirements and options, being able to assess whether or not they apply to a given situation and what benefits and drawbacks the use of the different options will produce.    This allows delegates to use their knowledge in any environment or business sector and in conjunction with any computer system used by their organisation or customers.

This exciting new course sets the standard for professional competence in commercial operational customs compliance.  This is important as under the new Union Customs Code (UCC) a company’s access to customs simplifications, priority treatment and reduced cost will be based on external risk assessment.
Successful delegates will be able to prove to employers that they have the essential knowledge and skills needed to work in this field without placing their organisations at risk. Companies having achieved or seeking to achieve AEO(C ) or AEO (F) status will be able to demonstrate that their employees engaged in customs work have the level of knowledge expected by the Standard.

The multichoice assessment at the end of the course ensures delegates are assessed on their knowledge and ability to apply that knowledge in business situations rather than on their capability to write lengthy essays.
