Designed for a broad audience that includes shippers, carriers, freight forwarders, bankers, government employees, insurance professionals and students alike, this certificate program introduces an even higher level of excellence to the NEI's outstanding continuing education program with the addition of its newest credential; a 60-hour online export certification program entitled the Master Export Specialist (MES).
The MES program is the result of more than a year of development that was undertaken in conjunction with the Los Angeles based supply chain training firm, Trade Facilitators, Inc. Fully narrated with multiple animation features, this on-demand, 10-Module course takes a hands-on approach to all facets of exporting from the United States. Students must complete a final exam and scholarly essay to earn the MES designation.

The Master Export Specialist Certification to be offered through the NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI) will provide members of the community with advanced training and the opportunity to become certified with a master's-level designation in the practice of Export Regulations. This program is intended to recognize individuals with a heightened level of expertise beyond a journeyman level in the disciplines required for practical Export operations. If compared to an academic degree, it would be analogous to the penultimate achievement of a master's level of proficiency. The MES will be highly visible throughout the industry and will provide the model for the vertical and lateral extension of the existing body of NEI certification programs.
Please note the following prerequisites are guidelines for enrollment only, and not required. It is our belief that potential students are best able to gauge their fitness for this certification program.
The NEI's Certified Customs Specialist (CES) designation is not a prerequisite for the MES Course.
