Education & Outreach

CU employees and student workers may either complete the SkillSoft course or the CITI export control course to meet an export control training requirement.  Each option is discussed below:

SkillSoft Courses

There are two courses available in SkillSoft:

  1. CU: Introduction to Export Controls
  2. CU: LASP Export Compliance

The CU: Introduction to Export Controls is a general overview of export control regulations and how they affect university research.  This course does not adequately cover the ITAR regulations and does NOT satisfy an export control training requirement.  

There is a quiz at the end of the course.  To receive credit you must score at least 70% mastery. 

The CU: LASP Export Compliance is course written by the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) and the Export Control office.  If you must complete training that addresses ITAR regulations, you should complete this course.  

There is a quiz at the end of the course.  To receive credit you must score at least 70% mastery.

 Instructions about accessing these courses are available here.

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Courses

On October 1, 2013, CU began offering the CITI export control course as an alternative to the SkillSoft course.  You may complete this course in lieu of the CU: LASP Export Compliance course to meet an export control training requirement.   

There are two modules in the course; each module includes a quiz to test your knowledge.  You must score 80% mastery for each quiz to receive credit for completion.  It should take about 1 hour to complete the entire course.  

Instructions about registering and taking the course are available here.

Upon completion of the course, please take a minute to respond to this survey about your experience. 

Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Courses

Any undergraduate or graduate student who is not a CU employee (i.e. does not have an Employee ID) should complete the export control training available on the CITI website

There are two modules in the course; each module includes a quiz to test your knowledge.  You must score 80% mastery for each quiz to receive credit for completion.  It should take about 1 hour to complete the entire course. 

Please note a Person of Interest number (POI#) is required for registering a new CITI account. If you do not have a POI# and were not given a special code per your project or class, please contact Tracy.Giordano@colorado.edu.

Instructions about registering and taking the course are available here.

Upon completion of the course, please take a minute to respond to this survey about your experience.

This is an interactive and practical application focused outreach, education and training session that will address key aspects of the indictment and answers questions such as these:

Was justice served to the appropriate degree?
Did the negative consequences and prison sentences fit the crimes?
Who else is making unauthorized transfers of export controlled technology?
What was and is the impact on academia and the global trade compliance community?
What lessons learned and lasting messages does the outcome send? 
Who is providing outreach, education and training in this arena?
Is everything always fundamental research?
