Instructor delivering a seminar

The Export Compliance Training Institute, Inc. (ECTI) offers comprehensive live training seminars focusing on compliance with United States export regulations administered by the U.S. Departments of State (ITAR), Commerce (EAR) and Treasury (OFAC). Recent Export Control Reform (ECR) changes have made it more important than ever to stay current on the rules. Export Controls are complex. Keeping up with the rules and frequent changes can be overwhelming.

Export Compliance Professionals who have endured days of dry, less-than-useful, and disorganized training will appreciate the ECTI difference. Our training is known for its practicality, logical organization and its dynamic, engaging and knowledgeable instructors.

ECTI’s instructors combine a depth of knowledge, a professional demeanor, personal stories and experiences from both the government and corporate trenches, and (gasp!) a sense of humor to keep the training fresh and engaging. See our reviews!
