In-House Training

  • The Center for Global Trade Education and Compliance provides flexible and targeted corporate training on U.S. import and U.S. export regulation, procedures and compliance. The risk of violating this increasingly complex web of requirements is reduced when a company invests in its management and employees by providing a basis for understanding these requirements. A typical client of the Center recognizes that it is important to comply with U.S. import regulations and U.S. export controls but the development and maintenance of a fully staffed and supported in-house training program is simply not cost effective. Such an in house training program should include:

    In house legal counsel with full time responsibility for keeping abreast of changes in the law relating to import and export regulation. This requires monitoring of the regulatory development of a number of administrative and enforcement agencies, as well as statutory changes and judicial opinions that may be relevant.

    A staff of experienced instructors with the responsibility for planning, creating and actually presenting a company wide training program.

    The development of a coordinated series of different courses recognizing that not everyone in your company has the same instructional needs. The preparation and maintenance of training materials that are updated on a regular basis.

    While most international trade participants would like to have the resources to devote to an in house training program that includes these components, the reality is that such programs do not immediately contribute to profitability and, therefore, are often neglected, understaffed or simply do not exist. More often than not, ill-informed and uninformed participants in international trade invite attention from governmental regulators not by intentionally violating restrictions they knew to exist but rather by stumbling into a regulatory quagmire of which they were unaware. The Center was created to fill that gap of training and encourage compliance by those who recognize that compliance with import and export regulatory issues begins with a proper understanding of the requirements, the procedures and the rationale behind each. A regular relationship with the Center for Global Trade Education and Compliance can efficiently outsource this responsibility on a more cost effective basis.
