Our training and competence system supports businesses and consumers by ensuring that the international trade workforce is appropriately qualified and well regulated.
Individuals must have appropriate qualifications, be assessed as competent by the CRT, maintain their competence through on-going training and meet standards of behavior. Sometimes these qualifications are enhanced by the additional supplementary courses provided (sustained professional development), for instance if individuals or businesses through ongoing training complete additional competencies, they receive recognition through our Sustained Professional Development (SPD) certificate, in addition they are granted an annual Deceleration of Professional Standing.
We are here to ensure that traders and businesses involved in the world of international trade are in a continual process of development, and accountable for their actions.
Our participation in European and global discussions
We engage through our National Standards Bodies (NSB's) regularly with a wide range of international counterparts and stakeholders, both bilaterally and in multilateral forums. This is to enhance cooperation, share best practice and discuss issues of common interest.
CRT international regulatory policy and standards, and their implementation, supervision and enforcement within partner countries, are an integral focus towards our remit. We work to achieve effective, proportionate and consistent international standards in relation to our operations. These issues include conduct, consumer protection, market integrity, competition and all relevant prudential issues.
Diversity in training
With a wealth of training courses available from our mandatory international trade courses to other training areas of finance and economics to a host of supplementary courses covering a diverse variety of disciplines from business English, to marketing principles and management, we are ensuring CRT accredited members are always at the very best of their business activities, helping to promote a stronger global economy as well as healthy competition and standardized fairer system of global trade.
