Training is the foundation of a successful export compliance program. Well-informed employees minimize the likelihood that inadvertent violation of the law will occur. The greatest risk of non-compliance of export laws and regulations occurs during casual conversations in person, on the telephone, or via e-mail. The way to prevent these types of violations is through awareness and training.

The Export Controls office will prepare updated training materials and will ensure that employees or students engaged in export-controlled activities receive the appropriate briefing. The office will also maintain records of training or briefings provided. In addition to in person training sessions, training on export controls is available in the CITI system.

Employees and students can also find additional information in the 2019 Export Control Compliance Manual.
