Certified Zone Specialist (CZS) Certification Course 2.0

•    What is the CZS?

The Certified Zone Specialist (CZS) Certification Program is designed to educate trade professionals in the growing and evolving U.S. Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) industry. Whether you have a broker’s license, have just a year or two of related experience, or are getting started in an FTZ role, this course will provide you with a solid foundation for you to increase your industry knowledge. The CZS course will review fundamental points relevant to applying for a new FTZ designation, getting your FTZ activated by Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and operating and administering an FTZ. The CZS is a knowledge certification that shows understanding of the basics of FTZ operations, and is a stepping stone towards the National Association of Foreign-Trade Zone (NAFTZ) Accredited Zone Specialist (AZS) experience-based designation (https://www.naftz.org/azs-designation/).
The CZS Course is a self-paced, online training that consists of 5 modules (each ending with a summary quiz), and a cumulative, proctored final exam. Once obtaining your CZS credential, you must earn 12 continuing education credits each year in order to be eligible for recertification. Designees must both earn their continuing education credits and pay a renewal fee in order to maintain their designation annually.
