Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) is a voluntary program that provides benefits for companies certified under the program. CTPAT is a layer in CBP’s cargo enforcement strategy. It is intended to strengthen supply chains and improve U.S. border security.

The success of the program for a CTPAT certified company depends on the entire company working together to insure that security measures are followed to secure the supply chain. Everyone working together helps the company remain in compliance. With this course employees of the organization will understand the reasons why the company participates in CTPAT and the role they each play in that process.
