EBRD 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 Trade Finance e-Learning Programme, jointly launched by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and the International chamber of Commerce (ICC) in May 2010, aims to help issuing banks involved in the EBRD's Trade Facilitation Programme (TFP) to attain best international practice in trade finance, through building a firm understanding of ICC trade rules and achievement of academic excellence.

The e-Learning Programme content covers all of ICC trade and Incoterms® rules and is written by the world's leading experts in trade finance.

The Trade Finance e-Learning Programme is generously supported by the EBRD Shareholder Special Fund and the EU Neighbourhood Investment Facility.
