New CTPAT guidelines were issued May 3, 2019. These new requirements must be implemented by the end of 2019. If not in urgent need, please stand by. We will have updated training ready for your Phase 2 Education, Training and Awareness implementation. The following schedule can be used if these 4 Phases are completed equally:

This course covers minimum supply chain security awareness and the "how to" operational security measures ("Minimum Security Criteria") required under the CTPAT program for employees of transportation intermediaries including consolidators, freight forwarders and NVO's, but excluding customs brokers (see S17u). It is designed to meet the CTPAT training requirement for employees who must understand, perform and/or otherwise comply with operational-level security measures. For more in-depth coverage including CTPAT benefits, application, certification, and validation requirements see S14u).

Note: Because the implementation of CTPAT security measures varies somewhat by company, this course, as is, can provide only general-purpose coverage of these topics. For companies with more than a few people to train, we recommend customization of this training to add company-specific security policy and procedures. The GISTware system which hosts this training facilitates such customization; please contact us for specifics.
