Academic Courses

The training offering at TRAPCA has grown to include three key focus facets of international trade: International Trade Policy, International Trade Law and International Trade Facilitation. The training courses cover academic and competency-based training designed to equip participants with analytical skills. In addition to the academic courses, TRAPCA provides tailor-made executive training designed to enhance specific skills of more senior officials from the public, private and civil society.

In fulfilment of its mandate, TRAPCA is running the following courses:

  • Advanced Pre-requisite Courses
  • Advanced Courses

Overview of the Academic Courses:

1. Advanced Pre-requisite courses

The Advanced Pre-requisite Courses, which are also known as TRP 400, are offered through the TRAPCA e-learning platform over the duration of six weeks covering three modules. The first two weeks are dedicated to the module on Introduction to International Trade Law, followed by another set of two weeks focusing on Economics of International Trade and finishing with a two weeks session on Introductory Aspects of Quantitative Trade Policy Analysis. At the end of each module, participants take online examinations and those that successfully complete the assessments become eligible for admission into the Advanced Courses that lead to the Master’s Degree Award.
