The Learning Center’s 2021 Events Calendar Now Open For Registration!
With a new year comes a new calendar of educational events for you! Each year we release course content specific to trade issues we see regularly. Our hope is that these courses will offer basic awareness of regulations and guidance on how best to comply with them.
New to cross-border trade? Perhaps you are seeking additional training on the importation of commercial goods? Whether your team is in need of a refresher, or if a new team member needs to be brought up to speed on trade regulations, there is a course for that. Regular offerings include How-To basics such as importing into the US and Canada, Incoterms® and choosing the best one for a shipment, import regulations for commodities regulated by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), produce/food and beverage, HS tariff classification, customs valuation and expanding sales to the US market.
Are you a professional designate? We’ve got your annual maintenance points here. Whether you’re a CCS, CES, MCS, CTCS, a legal, accounting, trade or logistics professional we’ve got your continuing education material. To check what each course will earn you, visit the Professional Development section of the course. Points/Credits are awarded by the Canadian Society of Customs Brokers (CSCB), NCBFAA Educational Institute (NEI) and other professional associations to maintain industry designations for the trade community.
