Join us for an exporting basics one-day training to be held on October 17th, 2018!  We’ve had requests to offer once more our export basics training program so we are doing just that.  This one-day training is specifically designed for regional companies that are new to exporting, company representatives that are in need of a refresher on the basics, or exporters looking to train new staff members.

The event features a group of experts presenting on a collection of modules of your choosing: Incoterms 2010, Terms of Payment, Due Diligence, Export Documentation, HTS Classification, Basic Export Logistics, and more.  The training will include a schedule of two options per time slot for attendees to choose from, a lunch presentation, as well as a few repeat modules in the afternoon for those that did not have the chance to attend select sessions during the morning portion.
