Our Training Events

Find the world of certification challenging? You're not alone.

As the global Fairtrade certification body, you can trust us to teach you everything you need to know about Fairtrade certification, wherever you are on your Fairtrade journey.
If you want to be a Fairtrade certified organisation but aren't sure where to start, you're in the right place.
We'll show you how to adapt the way you work to comply with Fairtrade Standards, e.g. in Fairtrade Certification Workshops.

We know how challenging it can be to navigate the world of certification, so we're offering training opportunities that can be tailored to your business, whether you're a producer, trader, retailer or brand – and whether you are already certified or not.

Fairtrade Standards evolve over time to keep up with our ever-changing world. If you're already Fairtrade certified our Fairtrade Certification Workshops can help you keep up to date with all the new standards, requirements and processes. If you are new to the system, we will make sure to explain to you how Fairtrade works for your type of business. Let us adapt the training to our specific needs or join one of our regular training events.
