US Customs Brokerage Part 6 is the sixth and last class in a six-part series of introductory courses for US Customs Brokers and should be taken after completion of Part 5.

Part 6 begins with methods of appraisement and valuation. We include case studies to provide experience with obtaining information from sample documents, determining NAFTA, GSP, FDA, Bioterrorism, MPF, HMF, entry type, importer of record, continuous vs. single entry bond, etc.* We also address enforcement measures, criminal sanctions that can result from violations and the ability the broker has to help thwart terrorism, smuggling and fraud.

Once you finish this course, a printable Certificate of Completion will be available for download. The course can be completed in 30.5 hours or less and earns NCBFAA-registered students 20 CCS continuing education credits.


*Please note: The case studies require the use of an ABI system with the capability to create an entry summary and single entry bond without transmission to CBP, and a customer invoice. All three documents must be printable. If your equipment does not meet our system requirements, there is an alternative method of testing available. Please e-mail tradesolutionsUS@dbschenker.com or 1 (844) 724-8743 once you have enrolled.
