Trade Compliance plays a prominent role in international business today. This course will provide you with the tools, knowledge, and mindset needed to make an immediate impact within the organization you currently represent in the U.S. You will learn the basic requirements of import and export transactions to and from the U.S.

In this two day workshop conference you will learn the key initiatives that make up a company-driven trade compliance program that focuses on efficiency, cost reduction, and building a reputable brand.
