Trade Finance e-Learning Programme

“Education is a liberating force, and in our age it is also a democratizing force, cutting across the barriers of caste and class, smoothing out inequalities imposed by birth and other circumstances.” - Indira Gandhi

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) launched the Trade Finance e-Learning Programme in May 2010, with the aim of helping issuing banks involved in the EBRD’s Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) to achieve best
international practice in trade finance. 

The e-Learning Programme covers all of the ICC traditional trade finance products and Incoterms® rules, which are a key feature of international commercial contracts involving the shipment of goods and provision of services.

Since the launch more than 1,000 trade specialists from over 150 banks across eastern Europe, central Asia and southern and eastern Mediterranean (SEMED) have taken part in the e-Learning Programme.

The study programme is flexible and can be accessed for 12 months from the date of subscription.  On completion of a training module, a student can request an ICC certificate of achievement for each module indicating the highest score achieved in each course assessment.

For further information on the EBRD e-Learning Programme please visit our dedicated e-Learning website.

About donor funding for training

Donors support the development of the Trade Facilitation Programme by providing funds for training and advisory services for issuing banks.

In addition, funds provided by Canada, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Taipei China enable us to hire trade finance specialists to deliver advisory services for banks in Russia, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine.
