We have recently launched our international training school here at 512 working alongside expert trainer Steve Townsley of Fidelitas to deliver a series of practical, up-to-the-minute and very relevant workshops. As part of that agreement we are delighted to inform you that we are now able to offer the very popular ITOPS qualification as part of our portfolio. The  ITOPS qualification is a practical and relevant qualification designed to prove that candidates have the necessary skills to accurately operate the administration procedures in an international office environment. This four day course will be delivered in partnership with East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) and Fidelitas Training at our offices in Sheffield.

Delegates will learn how to avoid costly mistakes and improve their international trade procedures. Some previous delegates have saved their employers thousands of pounds. Successful candidates will be awarded the ITOPS Qualification. The course is suitable for anyone employed in an international trade environment – whether that of a manufacturer/supplier or freight forwarder.
