This course is designed to aid those importers who wish to take advantage of the U.S. Government’s Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism Program (C-TPAT). It provides a fundamental understanding of the preparation and certification of the aspiring C-TPAT partner. Official CBP materials are used as texts; discussions and assignments are designed to guide the student to a practical application of the C-TPAT requirements and procedures to the needs of the student’s employer.
The focus is primarily on the practical issues facing an organization seeking to become C-TPAT certified so that it can reduce security-oriented inspections of its imports by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Topics covered in this course will assist importers in performing C-TPAT’s Importer Self Assessment requirement.
Course Credit: 3 Credit Hours
