Course Summary

Ethena’s U.S. Export Controls and Sanctions training course offers learners a baseline understanding of American export control laws and sanctions. With real-world examples of litigation and scenarios designed to resonate with a learner’s actual workflow, the course makes it clear that the average employee might be closer to a violation than they even realize.

The course covers key regulations including International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), Export Administration Regulations (EAR), and Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) — plus how those laws impact your team’s day-to-day.

Included Modules:


A level set on the importance of training on trade controls (export controls and sanctions) even when the product you work on isn’t something you physically ship.

The EAR, ITAR, and Export Controls

A rundown of the major regulators and enforcers of US export controls (i.e. BIS’s EAR and DDTC’s ITAR), how these regulations work, and where they apply.

OFAC and Sanctions

An outline of OFAC sanctions (both comprehensive and list-based) and licenses.

Why is this training important?

U.S. Export Controls and Sanctions play a pivotal role in safeguarding national security, promoting foreign policy objectives, and preserving global stability. These measures regulate the export of sensitive technologies, goods, and services to prevent them from falling into the hands of adversaries or entities that may pose a threat to U.S. interests. By controlling the export of strategic commodities, dual-use items, and military technologies, companies in the United States can protect their technological edge and prevent the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

I love the examples you provided. These happen in REAL LIFE!
