What is the CCS?

The NCBFAA Educational Institute's Certified Customs Specialist (CCS) Certification Program is designed to assist trade professionals involved in the import industry to become experts in the current import regulations. Whether you have a broker’s license or you have just a year or two of related experience, this course will provide you with a solid foundation for you to increase your industry knowledge. 

The CCS course will review fundamental points relevant to the importation process while delving into practical, relevant subject matter not generally tested on the formal Customs licensing exam. Each topic will help you grow and develop as an import professional. You will find that participating in the CCS program will provide you numerous venues for honing your professional skills while continuing to stay up with the rapidly changing marketplace within the import industry.

The CCS Course is a six-month, self-paced, online training that consist of 25 modules (each ending with a summary quiz), 4 checkpoint quizzes, and a cumulative, proctored final exam.
