    "This course for me was very complete and an eye opener to topics which I have never been exposed to before due the nature of the business I worked on. The topics covered were also a guide to help adjust my project pipeline. It gave me great insights in combination with the regulatory part. I know for sure I have tons of work to do but I also feel more confident on working my Risk Management plan. Thanks also to the lecturers who are very professional, topics were well prepared and explained."

    "What I enjoy most about the course is that it is actually presented by people who love talking about customs, and they present it in a way that you can follow."

  • Elitsa Radoeva, Germany
    Trade Compliance Specialist, AXON

    "You start from general, so you have an overview. Then you start digging into different topics, and you start building on those. It gives you the opportunity to remember enough to move on and to get a bigger picture. To understand why this is that and why this is this, and why certain things happen in your business environment. The consultations are also extremely nice because you can ask questions. You can ask questions in advance, and then those questions are being discussed and tailored to what you're looking to get out of those consultations."

  • Aida Habashi, Spain
    Logistics & Trade Compliance Specialist, KITH

    I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is just stepping into the world of EU compliance and is eager to delve into its intricacies. Some modules were super helpful because I could actually use what I learned in my everyday work. These modules broke down how EU customs works, and that was exactly what I needed. The practical info made it easy to apply the stuff I learned to my job, and I feel way more confident dealing with EU customs now.
