In order to compete in international export markets, businesses must have access to resources that can help them improve their knowledge and their export management readiness. CRT’s Export Management Development team offer training and advisory services to businesses with the ambition to export. Trainings are available to support exporters, as well as export advisors.
In addition assistance from our CRT Certified Export Consultants can play an important role, either to coach businesses on improving their competitiveness for successful exporting, or be actively engaging the business directly within business via an accredited CRT trader. They assist in all aspects of improving export competitiveness from the design of a successful export strategy, to improving marketing and production capabilities, to being able to conduct proficient export transactions.
The programme consists of modules covering key aspects of small business export management.
