The Essential Guide to Letters of Credit Training for Exporters

Our most popular letters of credit training course helps exporters to arrange workable letters of credit with overseas buyers as well as prepare and present complying documents to the bank.

Are you receiving letters of credit from the Middle East, Indian subcontinent, Africa or the Far East? Are you having difficulty setting up workable letters of credit? Do you frequently request amendments to letters of credit? Do your letter of credit documents regularly contain discrepancies?

We’re unique in tailoring the letters of credit training course content to suit your business, creating sample letters of credit and scenarios that are familiar to you and the industry in which you operate.

We can also guide you through your own letters of credit, offering hints and tips to smooth the process. This makes our letter of credit training memorable, valuable and engaging for your employees, allowing them to apply their learning to real-life situations.

Included as part of the training will be a walkthrough of our popular L/C Documents Tool, helping you to create documents quickly avoiding excessive manual input, minimizing the risk of discrepancies and increasing your chances of prompt payment. This simple tool will be offered FREE OF CHARGE to all letter of credit training clients.

About Virtual Training

The Essential Guide to Letters of Creditvirtual training course” opens the door to high quality training for colleagues wherever they may be based (UK, Europe or globally).

Virtual training programmes are far more cost-effective for both client and trainer alike. The training is easily accessible using video conference applications, such as Zoom or Microsoft Teams. There are no printing costs or travel time and expenses incurred and we are happy to pass on this significant saving to you.

Our Letter of Credit training was historically delivered as a one-day “in-company” workshop, however in the light of recent social restrictions we adapted it for remote delivery. As such, experience tells us that the training is best suited to delivery over two separate half-days (9:30 – 12:30). This allows delegates to digest and have time to reflect on the more technical aspects of this detailed topic. 

Flexible training options for your business

Whilst our standard Letter of Credit training programme is delivered over two half day sessions, the content is fully customisable, with the option for delivery in short, snappy sessions or in more depth over three or four half-days. The choice is yours – and we’re always happy to advise you on the ideal delivery length according to the needs of your business.
