AIAG has several training dates available from now through the end of the year for individuals looking to update and advance their knowledge of Materials Management Operations Guideline/Logistics Evaluation (MMOG/LE) or the U.S.–Mexico–Canada Agreement (USMCA).
“Ongoing professional development is critical in the automotive supply chain and trade sectors, as things are always changing,” says Tonya Swix, program manager, sustainable supply chain logistics for AIAG. “Live virtual training brings the best of all opportunities — the chance to engage with your instructor and colleagues while in the comfort of your own space.”
Global MMOG/LE Implementation Training – 6th Edition

USMCA Content Reporting
USMCA went into force on July 1, 2020, and replaced NAFTA as the trilateral free trade agreement between the United States, Mexico, and Canada. Significant changes to rules of origin affecting the automotive industry were implemented, including increases in regional value content (RVC) requirements, the introduction of a new labor value content (LVC) requirement, and establishment of new auto-part categories and requirements. As the industry adjusts to the new requirements, many vehicle producers and suppliers are working together to gather information to support calculations, increase qualifying content, and become audit ready.
AIAG’s 1-Day USMCA Content Reporting Live Virtual course — developed by OEMs, suppliers, and free trade agreement experts — is a moderately condensed training class developed from the original 2-Day USMCA Content Reporting course. It is designed to introduce free trade agreement and USMCA concepts to individuals who aspire to learn the rules of origin and general terms while becoming familiar with the new automotive requirements associated with USMCA.
This training is an 8-hour course in a highly interactive virtual setting, and is suited for trade compliance analysts, practitioners, working managers and international trade compliance managers as well as supply chain analysts involved in international trade or free trade agreement qualification.
