Export and Trade Counseling Resources

Welcome to the Export and Trade Counseling Resources web page, created in partnership with the U.S. Commercial Service of the Department of Commerce, the Small Business Administration, and the Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee (TPCC). This page is designed specifically for small business counselors. You play a vital role in promoting U.S. exports which support millions of jobs.

The close relationship that you have with your clients uniquely positions you to impact the global perspective and foreign market engagement of U.S. small businesses. It is crucial that more small businesses embrace opportunities for growth through exports. We recognize and greatly appreciate your contributions to our communities and our Nation.

On the left you will find links to Introductory and Intermediate level training resources. The introductory level section is designed for small business counselors who are new to export assistance, with links to useful resources on the basics on international trade.

The Intermediate Level provides links to more in-depth webinars on key international trade topics that will be useful for small business counselors working with clients who are ready to export, or existing exporters seeking to expand or strengthen their international trade business. Intermediate training gives you the tools to help your clients develop actionable and effective export business plans.

Certification

If you are an SBA or TPCC affiliated small business counselor (such as a counselor with an SBDC, WBC, SCORE, USEAC, MBDA, MEP or similar federal resource partner), visit the Counselor Certification section to take the online competency exam at Intermediate level.
