  • review1The great results achieved in the 'ITS Accreditation' are a reflection of the high standard of tuition provided by eBSI and I greatly appreciate the practical assistance I have received in the course of my studies.

  • “The eBSI course I followed changed my mind about remote learning; unlike some of the boring, largely unmotivating training I had taken previously, I found this course very stimulating and it encouraged me to delve even more into the complex area of global trade. Though I have never met Thomas personally, I feel I know him well through the interactive sessions and easy telephone/email access when and as needed. He comes across as a dynamic person, very knowledgeable in his area and who constantly strives to enrich and improve the approach to remote learning

  • test-vgrabI have no doubt that my attendance at EBSI was an exiting but most of all a very useful experience. The course complimented my more theoretical third level studies. I liked the way the topics were taught and these practical methods (especially the graphical representations) made issues clearer and more accessible to the learner. The evaluation techniques were very well developed. I especially appreciated the ways the Incoterms were explained and the Online sessions.
    In conclusion I can say that it was a very, very useful experience for me... especially that the ITS Accreditation compliments so well my Academy diploma!
    Thanks a lot for that wonderful opportunity!!!

  • lkdungtestWhat does a Vietnamese trade practitioner lack? Exposure to ICC experts, exchange with colleagues working in 'big name' organisations, and especially important - real case studies from all over the world. I got all these invaluable resources from eBSI at a cost which was great value for money. And amazingly enough, studying from home I was able to get an internationally recognized certificate!

    “I really enjoyed and benefited from communicating with eBSI during my studies at ITS Accreditation Programme. Thomas is a highly experienced trade practitioner and a great tutor with outstanding communication skills. The online sessions he carried out were great, with simple explanations of the material and the relevant examples. Feedback from tutors on the Open Exercises was very clear with supporting direction provided. I do not hesitate to highly recommend eBSI Export Academy to anyone interested in the area of International Trade.”

  • Thomas Smith knows his subject very well. He articulates his thoughts in a very communicative manner through his notes for us to understand the subject very well. When you have read his notes, you don't need to look anywhere else for clarifications - very thorough and precise! Look forward to more online classes with him.”

  • testmariadvorkovaThere is always a lot to learn does not matter how many years of practical experience one has. eBSI International Trade Specialist Accreditation program fits in any busy working schedule and provides a great deal of very practical knowledge of international trade and finance. For me knowledge from ITS is invaluable, I benefited from it both as a trade finance banker and adviser to my customers on multiple trade-related issues. Besides, it is a good preparation for CDCS exam. I highly recommend the program, it is very flexible and useful for anyone pursuing career in international trade.

  • review12International Trade can be a difficult subject to teach especially to someone like myself, not having had exams since my leaving cert 16 years ago but because of the expert panel, the fully interactive media and the fact I could work in a time that suited me - that made studying so much easier.

  • review9I express my sincere thanks and appreciation for eBSI support during the ITS Accreditation.

  • testgattohI think the ITS Accreditation programme is a must for all international trade practitioners. For me, taking the ITS Accreditation course immediately after my LLM (International Trade Law) at the University of East Anglia,,Norwich, UK was a pure delight. The e-commerce module of the course was particularly complimentary and useful. The course content was very well developed, informative and innovative. The tutors were very friendly and supportive. In fact going through the ITS Accreditation was very beneficial to me both as a lawyer and a customs officer, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to all involved in the various aspects of international trade: custom officials, forwarding agents, bankers, etc.
