Training & Resources

With input from member surveys and industry professionals, Maine International Trade Center (MITC) has developed a three-tiered trade education series to provide practical skills training and valuable takeaways to help your staff and your business succeed in international markets whatever your current experience level.

2019-2020 CALENDAR

The education series, running from September through June, includes a combination of in-person seminars and live webinars. Content will focus on the four main pillars of international trade – logistics, finance, legal, and marketing – at three different levels of international business experience.

Entry Level 1 seminars are meant for those new to export and import who are still determining if the time is right for them to begin international trade.

Mid Level 2 offerings for those with some export experience will include more advanced, in-depth content on topics such as international documentation.

Experienced Level 3 training is geared toward those who have experience in several international markets and sell a significant portion of their products/services abroad.


Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are postponing Global U training events scheduled for March through May 2020. We will update the events calendar when new dates are available.
