The Learning Center’s 2021 Events Calendar Now Open For Registration!

With a new year comes a new calendar of educational events for you! Each year we release course content specific to trade issues we see regularly. Our hope is that these courses will offer basic awareness of regulations and guidance on how best to comply with them.

Whether your team is in need of a refresher, or if a new team member needs to be brought up to speed on trade regulations, there is a course for that. Regular offerings include How-To basics such as importing into the US and Canada, Incoterms® and choosing the best one for a shipment, import regulations for commodities regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), produce/food and beverage, HS tariff classification, customs valuation and expanding sales to the US market.
