ITC's emerging distance learning programme offers a series of online courses and access to educational material on a range of trade related topics. The programme aims to provide staff in trade support institutions, enterprises - particularly SMEs - and trade policy specialists with access to pragmatic, topical online courses and learning material in support of skills development.
Our tutored online courses are segmented in three categories: Short Courses (2 weeks’ duration), Advanced Courses (5 to 8 weeks) and Certificate Programmes (up to 8 months). The course catalogue is constantly enriched by ITC and we are busy developing our first Certificate Programme. Tutors include both ITC subject matter experts and external, guest experts who often are globally recognized references in their topic of expertise.
Charged courses cost from USD 20 to USD 500 and are subsidized for developing economies (60% for emerging economies and 100% for Least Developed Countries).
We welcome Academic and Trade Support institutions to partner with ITC on course development and delivery.
We invite you to join ITC’s SME Trade Academy!
"Online platforms offer a viable and cost-effective route to lifelong learning, which is becoming a necessity in a world in which the value of knowledge-intensive flows is growing faster than other flows. The global labor market today is one where there is a widening gulf in the employment prospects of those with the skills that companies need and those without them."
I just had to post again to say how useful the information I learned thus far is! I actually applied it today in developing our plans for 2015! Have a great day every one!
As my current role primarily focuses on investment promotion rather than trade analysis, I was able to gain a significant amount of knowledge and understanding through participating in the course. It was well run, informative and enjoyable.
