Export Compliance E-Learning
Excelerate provides a practical e-learning experience for the action packed topic of U.S. Export Compliance. There are four training courses separated into three categories that allow tailoring to exactly the type of training you need. The training is provided in power point video presentation style based on our extensive experience and knowledge of the ITAR and EAR.
You have the option of taking each course as a single viewing or extending the bundle of courses into a Learning Management System (LMS) subscription. If you want to fill an auditorium with staff to watch employee training then just purchase the single view and enjoy. If you would rather assign courses to employees, manage their progress, generate reports, and maintain records then select the LMS option.
Below are details on the course structure and organizational categories to help you decide which options work for your situation. Determining your training category as an Exporter, Non-Exporter, or Non-USA is the first course of action. Each course is tailored to a specific category.
Course content will be updated regularly with new courses added based on requests and our commitment to include depth and quality of your training experience.
We are glad you are here and feel free to let us know if you have any questions.

Three Decisions to Tailor Your Training Experience
1. Are you a U.S. or Non-U.S. organization?
U.S. and Non-U.S. organizations will have a different focus to their ITAR and EAR training. Both will receive the same background information and safeguarding requirements but different content related to approvals and export activities.
2. Are you an exporter or non-exporter?
An "Exporter" is a organization that will obtain export approvals in association with their international work. "Non-Exporters" may have a requirement to be export compliant or may receive export controlled commodities, data, or services, but will not be obtaining export approvals directly. Choose "Exporter" if you are unsure. All Non-U.S. organizations will be "Non-Exporters".
3. Choose the LMS option or one-time viewing?
The Learning Management System (LMS) allows a Group Leader to assign, manage, and generate reports related to export compliance training within an organization. Single view allows lets you take a specific course one time.
Below are links to each of the course overviews. Each will provide information on the content of each course related to the category. You can purchase the LMS or Single View courses on the course overview or or pricing pages. The LMS option will require you add the number of students. Student quantities can be modified on the "My Account" page.
