    Starting September 6, Moraine Park Technical College will begin offering a new International Trade Certificate designed for adults currently working in businesses engaged in global trade or considering expansion into international markets.

    The certificate is comprised of five, two- and three-credit courses taken in sequence. They are: International Business Principles, Global Awareness, International Marketing, International Trade Documentation and International Finance. Interested persons may take one or all five courses. The full certificate can be completed in nine months.

    All classes are held Thursday evenings from 5:30 to 9:30 at the Fond du Lac campus and are six to eight weeks in length. The first class, International Business Principles, begins Sept. 6. To register for course number 138-100-001, call 920-929-2100 or 1-800-221-6430.
