Implementing CTPAT and the New MSC - NCBFAA accredited

CTPAT is a voluntary program that allows CBP to work in partnership with international trade stakeholders such as importers, carriers, consolidators, licensed customs brokers, and manufacturers towards a common goal of supply chain security. Companies that are CTPAT certified must be compliant with the recently released New Minimum Security Criteria. This course outlines changes to the criteria and best practices to prepare for CTPAT validations.

About the Course

Augment your supply chain security expertise and understanding of the CTPAT program with a course led by Ron May, career U.S. CBP official and former director of the CTPAT program. This self-paced, interactive course is based on insights from Mr. May’s experience as one of the first Supply Chain Security Specialists and the national leader of the CTPAT program.
