Apply for the 19th Virtual Customs Orientation Academy (VCOA) for French-speaking Customs officers

16 November 2023

The WCO is pleased to announce the launch of the Virtual Customs Orientation Academy (VCOA) aimed at French-speaking Customs officers. This programme, previously available only in English, aims to provide basic Customs knowledge and skills to newly recruited Customs officials with less than four years of experience working within their Customs administration. As an online programme, the VCOA takes place on the CLiKC! platform over the course of 14 weeks.

Candidates interested in participating in the programme must be nominated by their respective Customs administration. Nominated students are invited to complete the application form accessible on CLiKC! before the deadline on February 16 2024.

Through this initiative, the WCO hopes to make the programme more accessible to French-speaking Customs officers so that they can also benefit from the training. The WCO urges all eligible candidates to take advantage of this initiative.
