This Course is highly interactive, where attendees will be diving deep into the requirements and developing sample standard operating procedures, checklists and policies to implement at their firms following the course.   Once registered, attendees will be provided with a list of company specific items to consider prior to joining the workshop to create their own specific company documents while together.   This is an excellent program to advance your CTPAT application process, or prepare your USA and foreign site supplier for meeting with CBP.   Our strategies have guided many companies into the CTPAT Tier 3 status, so join the pros as we prep your team for success.
