Customer Testimonials from NAFTA Course

“The most beneficial part was understanding the differences between NAFTA and USMCA, changes to certificate of origin, and receiving documentation for future reference. John is a great instructor! It’s obvious during discussion that he is extremely knowledgeable in his field.”
“John taking the time to go over everyone’s specific topics of discussions and needs. Also was very knowledgeable with most topics of discussion. The instructor was very informative and would highly recommend anyone who is new to this to take this course. I now have a better understanding on NAFTA and will be able to use the knowledge that I have obtained to do my job correctly.”
“All of the course was 100% beneficial. I left the course feeling more confident about completing a NAFTA certificate correctly. John Goodrich was an excellent instructor.”
“The instructor, Paul was incredibly knowledgeable on the topic. He helped increase my comfort level on completing the NAFTA Certificates and when to specify when to and when not to complete one. In my company we have no one that was willing to complete the forms and I feel better about taking on that responsibility.”
