The STSA Operator's Certificate is a very practical training that has been organised by a working group composed of experts in Operations, Finance and HR managers under the supervision of STSA.

The programme has been thought with a hands-on approach in order to give participants the best and quickest possible grip of the diverse procedures needed to operate commodities.

  • Intro into Commodity Trading, documents and INCOTERMS
  • Commodities (Energy, Metals and Agri)
  • Trading Contracts
  • Trading Operations
  • Shipping, Chartering and Operations
  • Laytime & Demurrage Handling
  • Financial Instruments and Payments Terms
  • Physical Risks and Insurance
  • Law & Dispute Resolution Schemes
  • Course Review and Practical case study


The modules will take place Friday evenings and Saturday mornings not to interfere with a professional activity and to give enough time to absorb and eventually practice what has been learnt in the programme.

The programme allows participants to understand the life cycle of a trade from the operational side on a 4 months period.

This training is open to highly motivated candidates with an excellent level in English.
