Training Summary  

We've been blazing trails and setting standards for twenty years.

We've been leading the way and establishing industry benchmarks for the last two decades — from being the first to bring trade compliance training online to establishing the standard with function-specific, adaptable trade compliance training, we've always been driven to innovate.

In 2019, we broke new ground by establishing industry-first partnerships with world-recognised universities to provide Certificates of Completion for our learners — giving you the opportunity to turn what has always been mandatory (and, let’s face it, resented) training into an opportunity for professional development that will be a must for LinkedIn profiles. We call that a win-win for everyone involved.

We're not done yet, not by a long shot! We recently established another industry first with the "Moving Forward" Scholarship Fund at the Schar School of Policy and Government, our first move of many to help ensure that we contribute to our community in a meaningful way.
