The NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI)'s Export 101 is an overview of export transaction basics and responsibilities, U.S. export regulatory requirements, and the forwarder process. This four-part course incorporates critical thinking questions throughout to help you learn the material and get you to start thinking like an export specialist. Upon completion of the course, you will have a firm understanding of the basic requirements for the freight forwarder documentation and shipping process.
Export 101 is completely self-paced and online, including the final exam. Unlike the NEI's Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) and Certified Export Specialist (CES) programs, Export 101 is not a certification program.
$300 for members and $600 for non-members.

The NEI is pleased to offer special group pricing for companies that wish to use Export 101 for company training!
Please note the discount chart below. These rates will be issued to companies on a calendar year basis and will reset on January 1st each year.
*Any Additional Licenses above 110 would be at 70% off the original cost ($90 Member/$180 Non-Member).
Group discount pricing is not automatically available online—the NEI must invoice for any enrollments processed at the discounted rate. The NEI will keep track of how many course registrations your company has paid for and will be able to invoice accordingly. Unless purchasing the course registration as an individual at the individual rate ($300 Member/$600 Non-Member), please contact the NEI so we can create your invoice.
All students will have access to the course for 6-months from their personal date of enrollment.
The NEI will keep track of how many employees from your company enrolls into the course within each calendar year. The discounted rates above will apply through December 31st each year, but once a new calendar year begins, the discounts will start over. Meaning, on January 1st each year, the group discount rates will revert to 15% off for 2 to 5 enrollments, no matter how many employees had been enrolled from your company the year prior
Yes. For example, if you know you would like to have 10 course registrations available for new hires to your company—but you don’t have the specific employee names to provide to the NEI yet—you may purchase 10 enrollments (discounts apply) to have “on hold” until you can provide the names of the employees you wish to enroll. Note that these registrations will expire at the end of the end of the calendar year, OR 6 months after purchase, which ever time frame is later. IMPORTANT: Once expired, no refunds will be provided for un-used registrations.
