In sectors related to commodity trading, shipping and financing there is a lack of employees with strong and specific know-how and there are also difficulties in finding new talents in Ticino, in Switzerland as well as all over the world.

The Lugano Commodity Trading Association (LCTA) aims at training employees – thanks to the involvement of various well-known experts – in various specific fields related to commodity trading, finance, insurance, shipping and legal aspects.

Courses – taught in English – will be planned in accordance with sector necessities and with trading operators. Moreover, as soon as possible, a cycle of specific courses in commodity trading will be organized. In this way, new career starters can receive general training on the most important trading topics in order to reach an essential level of skills. This basic training will be an important calling card for those seeking a job opportunity in this branch.

For LCTA Members:
Members paying the association’s annual fee can attend all the association’s courses at a lower rate (50% of the full price).

Non members :
Non members can attend the association’s courses at a regular cost. Priority is given to association members.
