The Northern Ireland Customs & Trade Academy (NICTA) is an online learning platform preparing firms for new processes involved in moving goods under the Northern Ireland Protocol that started on 1 January 2021.

Developed as part of the Trader Support Service (TSS), NICTA provides online training, webinars and ‘how-to’ guides to all those involved in trade between Northern Ireland and Great Britain.

All courses are accredited by the Institute of Export & International Trade (IOE&IT), an Ofqual-awarding organisation with an 85-year track record of delivering training and qualifications.

As a registered charity and partner on the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, the IOE&IT’s mission is to enhance the performance of importers and exporters.

Some 60,000 learners gain IOE&IT qualifications or undertake training courses a year, through face-to-face or online classrooms and via one-to-one consultations.

Upon completion of a course, learners will receive a digital certificate confirming their achievement.
