Export Compliance: Export Training

On this page …


In the efforts to provide heightened awareness of export control regulations and related UW policies and procedures, the Office of Sponsored Programs offers training. Currently OSP conducts a semi-annual training open for anyone on campus to attend. A Catalyst tool has been developed for a self-training on export basics as well as product classification. Project specific or departmental training is also available upon request.

OSP Export Compliance Class

Every six months, a training session is held for general campus administration, faculty and researchers to attend. This training is a 4 hour session of export control basics and specific UW guidelines and processes. Visit OSP Learn to sign up for the upcoming training.

Online Export Control Training

The online training gives an overview of the regulations, your responsibilities, and who can help you when you may have an export control situation. This online course is required for PIs and personnel when a project involves export-controlled information but the course may be taken at any time.

A product classification catalyst tool is also offered. This tool assists in the process of how to determine if your item, software or technology is controlled by the ITAR or EAR. To access this Catalyst tool please visit here.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is available, by request, for small to large groups of administration, faculty and researchers. Generally these types of training provide an overview with a focus concern of day-to-day practices meeting export control requirements. These training are usually customized to the project or activity and related export control processes and requirements. Contact exports@uw.edu to schedule onsite training.

Federal Government Training

Each Federal agency involved with Export Regulations provides either limited training or general answers to common scenarios on their websites. Such training should be reviewed for a general understanding of regulatory requirements and responsibilities.
