Another successful celebration at the latest ITOPS graduate presentation.

On Wednesday 21st November we celebrated the latest graduation of delegates for the important International Trade Operations and Procedures programme that the South Yorkshire International Trade Centre / Sheffield Chamber of Commerce has been running at the chamber since 2014.

During that time we have run 12 full programmes of which 75 professional exporters have supported their experience with this internationally recognised qualification.

The ITOPS programme is accredited by the British Chambers of Commerce and a Foundation certificate in International Trade is issued together with the ITOPS graduation certificate.

The president of Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mr. Steve Manley presented the certificates and prizes to the 5 candidates who were available on the day.

The Winner of the very special ITOPS trophy was Mr Roger Welsh of Ross & Catherall for achieving the highest score from this group presented by the course founder and trainer Mr Steve Townsley. All delegates received an award from Karen Mosley of 5-1-2 (Sheffield). 5-1-2 have been the main sponsors of the ITOPS programme for many years.

We are taking bookings already for our next programme which commences on 4th March 2019. Due to purposely limiting the number of people Steve will accept on each course we do advise early enrolment.
