Learn Critical Steps for Exporting Properly

The instructor provides you with practical Do’s and Don’ts of Exporting. Upon leaving the class, you will take away a deeper understanding of exporting and a comprehensive text as your day-to-day resource. This Exporting course is updated annually to reflect changing practices and regulations.
Exporting is one of the best ways to grow your firm’s business. However, exporting without knowing the details can result in incorrect documentation and/or reports to the U.S. government.

Our Exporting course will help you and your firm to develop and generate accurate export documents as well as help you navigate the maze of export regulations. Through this class, you will become aware of items, transactions and destinations that may require an export license!
