Training courses to help you understand customs activities

Our basic training “Customs Compliance I – Overview” is an indispensable course that covers a wide range of topics, including the Administrative Monetary Penalty System (AMPS), applications under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) as well as all steps of a customs transaction.

Want to learn more? As a continuation of the Overview, we are pleased to announce our brand-new training session: “Customs Compliance II – Intermediate.” In addition to all the topics covered in the first course, you will become familiar with how to submit a request for a voluntary amendment, write a Compliance Manual and use the Facility for Information Retrieval Management (FIRM) system. Customs compliance will no longer be a mystery to you.

Moreover, we also offer a course on “Customs Classification” so that you can become familiar with the interpretation of the rules of origin and correctly classify your company’s products based on customs tariffs, allowing you to validate the work done by the customs broker.
