Training for US Exports
In my May 2018 post, I discussed training options for companies and individuals.
As a follow up, I’ve compiled different sources of export training below. A great place to start is the free e-learning training available on Census website. It’s found under the foreign trade section of the Bureau of Industry pages but I’ve provided the links below that also include other web sources for free export training.
For those that like reading the regulations directly, you can download a PDF of 15 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 30 that covers foreign trade here.
US Department of Commerce – Bureau of Industry and Security
The BIS is responsible for enforcing export regulations, but also with enabling the export community. The BIS provides a great deal of quality training and resources on their site (or through the Census site). All of these training sources should be reviewed before you need to consider any other paid training.
These are some highlighted courses and resources but take some time to search through the BIS website to find other available content.
If you don’t already have a well-defined and internally audited export program, including trade compliance policies, manual, and written standard operating procedures, start with the BIS
Export Compliance Guidelines – The Elements of an Effective Compliance Program.
A 2018 recorded webinar provides a walk-through of the guidelines and is a quick way to take a look at the content.
