UK based eBSI Export Academy is hoping to offer more opportunities to Ghanaians to acquire specialised knowledge in the area of International Trade and Digital Marketing with the appointment of a representative in Ghana.
This, it believes, should provide relief to many people working in customs, exports and imports sector, trade finance as well as banking who have difficulty finding appropriate certified courses to build their knowledge in this area.
The Country Manager of eBSI Export Academy in Ghana, Mr Francis Yaw Tontoh, who disclosed this, said the courses were targeted largely at workers seeking to enhance their knowledge and become experts in these areas. He explained that the online course provided flexibility for workers who needed knowledge, adding that a 50 per cent discount was being allowed to mark the new relationship between eBSI Export Academy and Ghana.
eBSI is a leading online trade training academy based in Ireland with thousands of graduates in over 70 countries around the world. eBSI Export Academy specialises in the delivery of Certified International Trade and Trade Finance programmes leading to certification from the Institute of Export, UK. Programmes offered include Trade & Finance, Shipping and Supply Chain. Some of the courses are Export Market Operations, Trade and Customs Practice and eBusiness for International Trade. Others are IOSCM Freight Transport, IOSCM Manufacturing courses and IOSCM Shipping courses.
Mr Tontoh said there was the need to boost the practical and technical knowledge delivery programmes in international trade, its related courses, as well as digital marketing in Ghana.
He, therefore, explained that the eBSI courses were going to be very relevant to Ghana. He said the courses were also suitable for students who were looking for a career in International Trade Financing with financial institutions, shipping companies or with export and import companies.
He said with the emergence of the oil and gas industry, as well as the expansion of the country’s sea ports, the country would require expertise in these areas.
Mr Tontoh added that having a representative here in Ghana meant that Ghanaians who enrolled could also have an immediate correspondent as far as their training is concerned and invited interested people to take advantage of the opportunity that eBSI Export Academy offers.
