CTPAT E-learning Training Series

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.

After nearly two decades of the program’s existence, CBP introduced a number of changes to the CTPAT program in 2020.  A significant requirement is that members must now train employees every year and new employees must receive training as part of their onboarding process.

The CTPAT security training courses in this series are broken down into short lessons to allow a better understanding of the subject matter. Each lesson is followed up by a review to further strengthen the understanding of the subject matter.  A final exam is also required after the entire course to earn the Certificate of Completion.

The CTPAT security e-learning courses provide an overview of the program.  It is intended for groups that need to comply with CTPAT training requirements.  Each course is designed to target different members of your team and addresses topics that are most relevant to their role in the company.  Some will only require one course, while others will require two or all three.

The courses will explain the new Minimum Security Criteria, regardless of the course selected.  These course are not intended to teach you how to apply for CTPAT membership or how to re-validate on the CBP CTPAT portal, but rather as a tool for overview training for your entire company as required by the MSC.
