About the Course

If your company is importing or exporting products you are subject to U.S. and global regulatory compliance and controls. From the CEO to the Credit Manager to the Sales Force...compliance is everyone's responsibility and can pose a risk not only to your company, but to you personally. Non-compliance is simply NOT an option.

FCIB's unique and comprehensive 5 week online course provides vital knowledge for the export department. You will learn how to spot red flags and recognize when it is time to seek help from your company's compliance officer or legal counsel.
