With the dynamic international trade and customs landscape, it is essential for businesses to better understand customs-related topics and their impact on businesses. For international trade and customs professionals, it is also important to:

  1. Learn about the technicalities of customs topics from the WCO Academy and add more value to your organisation 
  2. Take charge of your own career development, up-skill and receive certificates of achievement from the WCO Academy
  3. Have access to core WCO publications and make informed trade and customs decisions for your organisation

In view of the above, the WCO Academy has developed e-learning courses for the private sector. These topics include Harmonized System Classification, Customs Valuation, Rules of Origin, the WTO Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), the WCO Standards to secure and facilitate global trade (i.e. SAFE) Framework & Authorised Economic Operator (AEO).

For further details about the e-learning courses and registration process, they are categorised as follows:

  1. E-learning courses bundled with core WCO reference publications such as the HS Explanatory Notes and Customs Valuation Compendium to facilitate a more holistic learning experience, and allow valuable references for businesses to refer to when managing their international trade strategies and operations​
  2. E-learning courses only

You can refer to the above two categories under the sub-pages of “Courses with core WCO publications” and “Courses only” respectively in our website.

If your organisation wishes to offer WCO e-learning courses for multiple employees and require customised training packages, please reach out to us at or click this link to get a quote. Our team will get back to you as soon as we can to discuss further.

We wish you an enriching learning experience!
