Who we are

The Customs Academy has been developed by the Chartered Institute of Export & International Trade, Maersk and the Centre for Customs & Excise Studies to support the development of a robust and sustainable customs intermediaries sector in the UK, EU and globally.

We do this by providing world-class online training courses, which are designed to fit around a full-time career.

Initially set up at the request of HMRC to prepare the UK’s customs sector for trade in a post-Brexit landscape, the Academy’s suite of qualifications has since been expanded to also cater for customs professionals operating in both an EU and global context.

Resource for customs professionals

As it develops, the Customs Academy will become an essential resource for industry professionals. This includes invaluable business resources, advice on industry best practice, and a virtual community of industry professionals.

Qualifications and courses

The qualifications being offered by the Academy provide practical career progression routes, encouraging new entrants into the sector and providing credibility for established customs professionals through a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme.

At the core of the Academy is a world-first professional educational programme that caters for the full spectrum of knowledge and skill requirements – from school leavers through to experienced professionals.
