Attend USMCA Webinar Today

Experience the advantages and benefits of attending a Global Training Center webinar

Course Description

How is USMCA going to impact your business? NAFTA is now USMCA. Learn what the new changes to the proposed agreement mean for you and how it will affect your current NAFTA process. USMCA is set to be signed by the end of the year and sent to their respective governments for approval. Meanwhile you should get a head start to learn how the proposed changes will impact the way you do business.

Course Features

  • Teaching Time 3.5 hours
  • Certificate 1
  • NCBFAA or CEU 3.5 credits

While some will have little impact, others may have to possibly change their supply chain to continue to benefit under the new agreement.

This is not an information session but rather training that will take you through the changes and how we see the differences in the two agreements.

Join us for a half day training on the USMCA. You should have knowledge of NAFTA as the intention of this training is not to teach the fundamentals or rules and procedures but to rather compare and contrast between the two and provide knowledge that you can use to begin preparing for the changes. This is a specialty class that is only being offered for a short period. This class does not include a reference book. Attendees will receive the electronic documentation and Certificate of Completion.

"Class will help me stay ahead of the curve and give me an idea of what to prepare for when it comes to the changes when going from NAFTA and USMCA. John does a great job overall in presenting the topics but what sets him apart is he does a great job of knowing who is in his audience and giving commentary and examples that are specific to who is in his audience. It helps make his presentations more personal and gives better perspective on the regulations. The comparisons that John put together between NAFTA and USMCA instead of just presenting USMCA were beneficial. "

"John is an excellent instructor that has deep and broad knowledge, both practitioner and consultative management, of importing, customs and trade agreements that enables him to relay the spirit and intent in a realistic and scalable manner"

"The subject matter is ample enough for multiple webinars, but it provided enough information to spark my interest to study it more for myself. Given the uncertainties with implementation of USMCA, timing & final agreement details, it's great to get the summarized preview."
