This class is designed for exporters, freight forwarders and others who are responsible for ensuring that their shipments comply with US export and licensing requirements. It also benefits those within an organization who need to understand US export control policies and procedures, as well as those who are responsible for export compliance training within their organization.

The course includes information on US agencies and how to apply for export licenses. It also covers license exceptions for exports, procedures for items subject to export authorization and/or permits from the Department of the Interior, Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) and US Customs (CBP).
