Export Control Training Requirements

University of Arizona employees working on an export controlled project secured with a Technology Control Plan (TCP) are required to successfully complete the initial export control training module prior to the start of the project and to complete export control refresher training every two years throughout the duration of the secured project, or for as long as the TCP remains in place.

Failure to successfully complete the initial training as well as the biennial continuing education requirements will result in your removal from the project until the training has been completed. Principal Investigators conducting research secured with a TCP are responsible for ensuring that all project personnel completes the required export control training.

If the University Export Control Program (UECP) determines that a project is export controlled and requires a TCP, the Contracting Services will not process the pertinent sponsored research agreement, contract, or non-disclosure/proprietary information agreement until receiving confirmation from UECP that all project personnel have successfully completed the export control training requirements and a TCP has been implemented. In addition, no work on the project can begin until all project personnel has successfully completed the export control training and the TCP has been signed.

The University Export Control Program is responsible for export control training content and for maintaining training records.

Please contact the University Export Control Program for additional information or questions regarding export control training requirements.

Biennial Export Control Refresher Training

Within two years of signing a TCP and completing the initial training, an export control refresher training is to be completed.  Refresher training will be required for as long as the individual remains on a TCP.  The export control refresher training requirements can be completed by:

  • attending a qualifying University of Arizona-sponsored export control presentation/session on campus, or
  • successfully completing an approved online export control training module.  

Approved Online Training:

UA personnel may fulfill required export control refresher training by completing the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) Program Export Compliance modules: "Export Compliance for Researchers: Part I and Part II."  

UA personnel can log into CITI Program at https://www.citiprogram.org through the Single-Sign-On (SSO) link by following the steps below: 

  1. 1.  Choose the "University of Arizona" from the list of organizations
  2. 2.  The UA WebAuth will appear if you are not already on the UA Network; enter your UA NetID and Password 
  3. 3.  New Users will be prompted to create a profile; existing users will be taken to the main page. 
  4. 4.  Select "Export Compliance (EC)" from the course selection on the main page. 
  5. 5.  Under "Required Modules" select the "Export Compliance for Researchers: Part I" module. 
  6. 6.  Once Part 1 is successfully completed, select the "Export Compliance for Researchers: Part II" module. 
  7. When both modules have been successfully completed, UECP will be automatically notified by the CITI Program system with 24 hours of completion.
