certified International Mobility Officer

Each country has a system of legal and administrative compliance requirements of its own.
This challenges the Operational Mobility Manager to deal with the requirements of both home and host country in an international context. It's a hazardous job because of the complexity and the risks of incompliancy and assignment failure which lead to high costs and damages, not only in money. Also emotional, corporate image and personal reputation damage are at stake. And although there will be providers around to take over some or even all tasks, this doesn´t waiver the employer´s ultimate responsibility and liability for damage.

We've learnt from the past that what the Operational Mobility Manager needs to bring an international assignment to a good ending is a network of peers and skills to find reliable information/ service providers
and manage them efficiently, but above all, knowledge of how national systems relate to each other in an international context. Knowledge is the key to being in control !
First step to obtain this knowledge is
full understanding of one system and how this system works in an international environment. This is the necessary stepping stone to read other systems and detect hazards timely.

The Expatise Academy provides this first step towards being an all-round Mobility Professional in an intensive training course International Mobility Compliance. This course is aimed at professionals responsible for cross-border mobility with a special focus on Dutch international legal and administrative compliance regulations and offers furthermore access to a
network of peers, reliable information sources, reliable service providers.

The Expatise Blended, Adaptive Learning Concept

This approach combines traditional face-to-face classroom sessions with preparatory computer-based (e-learning) activities such as tests and webinars, resulting in an integrated, highly efficient learning experience. The adaptive element in the Expatise Concept secures learning tailored to individual learning needs, as indicated by the participant’s responses to questions and tasks.


The curriculum consists of seven modules including the following subjects: international HRM, Dutch Labour Law in an international context, Immigration in the Netherlands, International Employment Tax, Cross border Social Security, and Relocation topics. The course takes place over six months and consists of seven full day sessions (09.30 - 17.00), with an e-learning introduction. Participants who complete all the modules will then take part in the final graduation project: an all-encompassing simulation exercise.


The course aims to gain knowledge of Dutch law in an international context and develop skills to manage cross border deployment of staff efficiently, to use solution-focused applications independently, and to build up a network of peers to share experiences/ exchange information and work on solutions collaboratively.


Participants who complete the course successfully will be qualified as an ECInternational Mobility Officer. This qualification allows membership of the Expatise Alumni Association for Qualified Professionals in the field of international labour mobility.
A governmental Post-Graduate accreditation of this education programme is in process.


In-house HR/ P&O staff, salary administrators, service providers and civil servants who are operational involved with administering cross border deployment of staff to and from the Netherlands.
