Courses available

Gafta offers 3 ‘off the shelf’ courses that can be ordered in-house:

  • Commodity Contracts – A 2-day course covering contracts in the commodities sector in detail. Delegates will study both general industry and Gafta-specific contracts, including their formation, terms and the process associated with commodity trading.
  • Commodity Shipping – A 2-day course giving a detailed view of shipping in the commodities sector, including documents, contractual obligations, parties concerned in shipping operations and other practical issues.
  • Commodity Dispute Resolution – A 2-day course exploring what happens before, and when, a contractual dispute arises, including mitigating risks, damages, force majeure and other exceptional circumstances plus what you need to know about the arbitration process.

Alternatively, companies can order a bespoke training programme, depending on the needs of their team.


In-house training has a minimum fee**, with additional options depending on the specific requirements, location and numbers of delegates.

Gafta will provide a recommended agenda, however our bespoke clients can request additions that are in-line with their own needs if necessary. Gafta will arrange all the necessary administration, so all you need to do is to keep us appraised of numbers & cover the costs associated with doing bespoke or in-house training.
