NKITA presents World Trade Center of Kentucky’s International Trade Certification Workshop

International Trade can be complicated to navigate, and it’s important to provide employees a foundation of effective and efficient management of international trade operations.

To assist local companies the Northern Kentucky International Trade Association, along with the World Trade Center of Kentucky, is offering a three-day trade certification workshop June 12-14, 2018 at Sullivan University – Center of Learning (2017 Grandview Drive, Ft. Mitchell, KY 41017).

The certification will equip attendees with the most up to date knowledge on international business.

Experts in market entry strategies, international payment and export financing, global currencies, import/export compliance and logistics, international sales, and legal considerations will lead various sessions through the certification. The International Trade Certification Program is a recognized “knowledge share” where class participants learn from peers and in turn, can effectively grow their organization through international trade.
