Duration: Half day (9:30am – 1pm) – Lunch from 12:30pm

Cost: £118

Location: Jurys Inn, Birmingham, B1 2HQ

A general introduction to ‘Strategic’ export controls if you are new to the subject. It provides a foundation in the controls on the export and trade of Military, Dual Use, WMD and Human Rights goods, software and technology and how to apply for a Licence.

Topics covered will include:

• Why have controls?
• What’s controlled?
• What is meant by “technology” and how it may affect you
• Types of export licences
• Compliance and enforcement

After the workshop, you will be sent a short assessment module* to test your learning, before being awarded a certificate of achievement. The assessment module, delivered by Cranfield University, will be in the form of an online quiz with multiple-choice answers.

If this course is the first step in the Learning Path, it is recommended that attendees use their new knowledge to assess how Export Controls apply at their place of work before attending further training. This course can also be used to provide general awareness of Export Controls.
