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”

Salome Wagner

When I joined the eBSI, the company I work for was just building up its international sales department and we missed up-to-date information and experience. This programme gave us an overview of all the different fields to consider before going global.

Though the program of your local Chamber of Commerce you can find specific learning units dealing with one geographical region or a dedicated law system but you sometimes miss the basis steps. The online learning is also a very comfortable way of going through the program at your own speed and without stress.

We already picked up some ideas to implement direcly in our own export plan.

I recommend eBSI and the work he has developed on the ITS program. I took the program about two years ago and it is a very well designed program which will give a sound knowledge on Export Market, E-commerce, Finance.

It is very flexible and with a lot of support and a virtual campus where you can bring comments into it or enter the forum and read other users comments and discussions.

It is a home-based program which you can follow on your own time.

I really recommend the program to anybody interested in Export and the different issues around it.

The International Trade Specialist Training Programme is an essential course in foreign trade. It brings in different elements, that in the day-to-day running of my job, I would not encounter otherwise. With working a 5-day week from 9 AM to 5:30 PM, the CD ROM & online tuition, lets you learn the subjects at your ease.

For me the best part of the programme was the interaction between the participants from the various professional disciplines of international trade, including exporters, importers, bankers, forwarders, marketeers, customs and other professionals.

This blending of structured interactive content with online tutorials from highly experienced practitioners develops a network of trade contacts that lasts long after completion of the programme.

International 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.

What 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!

My experiences with the team from eBSI were second to none, I found the ITS Accreditation extremely informative & interesting with a very high level of professionalism maintained throughout duration of course. The online sessions proved that a ‘class room’ environment can be achieved at your work desk or home study, while the occasional group meetings provided fantastic Q&A opportunities with the eBSI tutors.(and fellow students)A very worth while and enjoyable experience.

My experience with the ITS course is that International Trade is NOT Commerce,Economics or Business Studies it is simply International Trade so having had diverse experience in Communication,Marketing and Public Relations,I still find the course a novel experience with each phase and module as challenging , stimulating and as rewarding as the others couple with the wizardry expertise, patience, and support of the Lecturers.

My experience with the International Trade Specialist Training Programme has opened new doors and presented new opportunities for my company. The course material was concise and laid out in plain easy to understand language. The elearning dimension was of tremendous benefit as I could learn in my own time and the online sessions added to that benefit.

The staff at ebsi are exceptionally professional in their methodology and this added significantly to my experience. I have no difficulty in endorsing the ITS accreditation programme and in recommending it to anyone interested in the area of International Trade.

Working as a consultant on the road I thought it would be a good idea to undertake a professional course of study. The ITS Accreditation has exceeded my expectations. The eLearning Technology meant I could study in an engaging manner at a time and a pace that matched my busy schedule.

The quality of learning elements brought to bear by the trade professionals working at the eBSI was a breath of fresh air after paper based correspondence courses. I have finished the programme but I am still hooked on participation in the online activities.

I am really glad I have successfully completed the course. It was very useful for me indeed – the fact I was undergoing a western international trade course helped me to find a better job at an innovative IT company already in the process of study.

The marketing and e-commerce modules provided me with the relevant guidance for my every day activities in the new position and the comments from the tutors have been very useful, too. And certainly I enjoyed the friendly and student-oriented atmosphere of the online school.

I 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!!!

The ITS Accreditation was very beneficial for upgrading my business skills. I have got an Executive MBA in 1998, and I was looking for a certified program in the field of international trade that should be comprehensive, of high quality, with top faculties available anytime for whatever questions you might get in your project work, or training sessions.

The eBSI was the right school for me. I was exciting to observe and take part in the creation of an international mindset. I had fun, every on-line session I spent enriched me with good business knowledge and understanding of people and cultures.

I am delighted with the friendly but professional way in which eBSI has helped me through what could have otherwise been a difficult area of study. The refreshingly colourful and visual presentation of the course materials made study a pleasure!

I 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.

I found the entire course very beneficial as it allowed me to get a better knowledge of certain areas that were relatively new to our company. I also found the workshops and online sessions very interesting as they provided me with the opportunity to interact with the other participants and to hear their opinions on the topics discussed.

The continuous assessment was an excellent method of reinforcing a lot of the material that I had studied on the CD Roms. The availability of a forum of the website is an excellent idea for any future queries that we may have and to keep up to date with the latest developments.

The ITS Accreditation Programme is essential for anyone involved in international trade. The on-line sessions are excellent and allows you to clearly understand each topic with relevant examples and simple explanations. I found the content excellent and very detailed and I have indeed referenced them many times regarding daily issues.

I also found the Export Market Strategy and Incoterms particularly helpful. The fact that the programme is eLearning meant that it did not interfere with my work schedules and allowed me to study at my convenience. Most importantly, the professionalism of Vincent and his Team is outstanding…I highly recommend the programme.

I graduated ITS accreditation in 2004. Living in the Republic of Moldova, it was so convenient to study this well-designed and interesting program! It is very useful to enlarge existing knowledge and to extend horizon with the specified practical issues for those persons wishing to improve their qualifications. The Exchange of experience and special networking between trainers (always happy to help you and to gave knowledge and advice) and students from different countries makes the program very valuable!

I truly recommend these studies for those willing to get interesting jobs, to fulfill professional duties at the highest level, and to became appreciated (and highly compensated) specialist.

I looked at traditional learning but with my busy work schedule it didn’t suit me. With the eBSI course, I could study when I wanted. Some days I didn’t study much, then other times I would sit down and do a lot all together – and there was always guidance and encouragement from the eBSI team… as well as deadlines for assessment submission!!! This helped me to keep a good study rhythm and to get the best out of the course. At the very least, the ITS qualification I have gained will be a very useful compliment to my banking experience on my CV!

I am writing this feedback to thank to all team of eBSI for the work they do and to tell those interested in ITS Programme how beneficial it is not just to enlarge your professional knowledge but also to start a new business career. ITS course was my first step into the international trade world. After absolving that course and with my knowledge of languages I got a job as an export manager in Spain.

What I highly appreciate on the ITS course is that you can get from this course what you really need either deep knowledge about certain area of International Trade thanks to the high qualified tutors or you can just obtain general knowledge about International Trade which will definitely help you in your further career.

Its been a real pleasure studying under your support. I must acknowledge one thing, which I have experienced while I studied. You have been tremendous support. It never happened a single time, when I requested something from you and you did not respond within 24 hours.

It may look very easy, but actually a person who knows operations or customer support can identify it as an orchestrated effort which require high quality management skill and high level of commitment. I am sure that even though my ITS programme ends up here, we will remain part of EBSI alumni network and team for ever. Thank you for every support and cooperation you provided to us during this programme.
