Are there any changes to the certification courses?
Effective July 2015, the CCS course has been changed from a weighted score course to a self-paced online course with open and on-going enrollment. The cost will remain $650 (for members) or $1250 (non-members). The CCS course will no longer have scheduled quizzes, and the quizzes will no longer be weighed out for a final score. The CCS Course will be broken up into 23 modules, each with an assessment at the end requiring a passing grade of 75% to proceed to the next module. Four checkpoint quizzes will be placed throughout the course. A final proctored online exam will be placed at the end of the course. The proctor must be a colleague authorized by the NEI. A passing grade for the final exam will be 75% which will indicate completion of the CCS course and full certification of the Certified Customs Specialist.
The CES course will remain the same and will continue to be hosted on GISTnet. The CES exam is also web-based, but has on-going, open enrollment. You need 1 year of experience in exports to take the course, and, as with the CCS, we require an application, letter from your employer, and a copy of your resume. The cost for the course is also $650 (for members) or $1250 (non-members). You would need to complete all of the modules and passing the proctored, online CES final exam to gain certification. The passing grade for the CES course is also 75%.
Why do I no longer recertify on a fixed date basis?
LogisticsEI is designed to allow users to learn at their convenience and become certified at any time. The first date that they complete their certification requirements will become their ongoing anniversary date for recertification. Note that once you have a renewal date, it will always be that date. For example, if your current renewal date is 2/1/2016 and you complete your credits on 6/1/2016, you still will not be allowed to renew until 2/1/2017. Your renewal date will always be February 1st of each year.
Our payment functions are not yet available on LogisticsEI, so you must make all payments through the NCBFAA website. If you need assistance in making a payment or need us to create an invoice for you, please contact the NEI staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
