A very enjoyable experience with a very diversified group of class mates. Some with a great deal of business acumen and others who were clueless. The instructor was able to weigh these factors and deal with them very effectively during the class time without causing offense or hold up the course delivery, which was awesome without visual (eye to eye) or audio contact.

The course content is summarized at the Content link above. No knowledge or experience of business is necessary, or expected.  The course content is an alternative to what is studied in schools, which necessarily outlines international trade as big business.  We focus on small business, the start-up, and naturally, all businesses start small.  However, knowledge and experience is always a plus, and we do help people who are hoping to expand their present business.

The course is delivered over the internet, and utilizes only the most common and easy internet features.  If you use email and can watch youtube online, you can take this course.

Although this course is strictly noncredit, there are quizzes, so I can assess your progress.

In any event, the course is taken at your own pace, and after the formal nine weeks session, you will be invited to join about 1500 others who have taken this course and are in some way pursuing this field.

And although the course is strictly noncredit, and unaccredited, if and when you complete all of the steps, I will issue you a certificate of completion, in the German style, which summarizes your activities, over my signature.
