Estimated total study time: 7 hours 35 minutes [Enroll now]

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 addresses supply chain security awareness and the operational security measures ("Minimum Security Criteria") required under the CTPAT program for employees of transportation intermediaries including consolidators and NVO's, but excluding customs brokers (see S12u). It is designed to meet the CTPAT training requirement for managers and supervisors who must understand, perform and/or otherwise comply with operational-level security measures. It also covers CTPAT benefits, application, certification, validation and program requirements.

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.

The Transportation Intermediaries Place in the Supply Chain

In order to recognize and foster awareness and reporting of threats posed by terrorists and contraband smugglers at each point in the supply chain, it is first important to understand what a supply chain is and where you, the C-TPAT participant, fit into the equation.

Cargo and Supply Chain Security for Transportation Intermediaries

Understanding these measures will make it easier to see what measures are employed within your company. In addition, it will be easier to see if there may be gaps in security.
