2.   Export Administration Regulations (EAR)

3.   The International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR)

4.   The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)

Below are the steps to register for the training:

To register for the first time through Villanova, enter “Villanova University” in the “Select Your Organization Affiliation” box.  Follow the subsequent prompts to set yourself up as a learner. 

If you have completed the required modules within the last two years at another institution, please link your existing CITI profile to Villanova. 

Each course module consists of instructional text, related case studies, and a quiz.  The quiz can be retaken until a minimum passing score of 80% is achieved.  If you have any questions about this program, please contact the Office of Research Administration.
