Worth 14.5 CCS CEUs, this the first of the six-part series of introductory courses in the practical work of U.S. customs brokerage work groups. Each is designed to help "jump start" a new trainee or facilitate the transition of a person with related experience, such as freight forwarding, to the tasks performed by brokers. This training is about what customs brokers actually do---their operational functions and the business of customs brokerage. It serves as a foundation for a wide range of subsequent, more in-depth training based on particular job assignment. If you are new to the business of customs brokerage or acting as an importer, these courses will accelerate your understanding of responsibilities, regulatory environment and operational work flow of importing goods into the U.S. For those of you who already have some experience, these courses will fill in gaps in your operational knowledge, as well as add "big picture" understanding of import requirements.
