Event description

Description

In order to become a Customs Broker, an applicant must pass an intensive exam that tests their ability to find information in a short amount of time. Unfortunately, most people who take the exam do not pass on the first try. In fact, it takes many applicants several attempts to pass the exam. The average pass rate is reported to be between 3-11%, regardless of the fact that the test is open book and open note. The main reason for such dismal results is the fact that most test takers have no idea what to expect the first time they attempt the test, nor any idea the best way to organize their materials for it. Further, some students work in customs brokerage houses already and are used to their own practices, not realizing they will have no access to electronics during the exam.

I propose a course which does not only teach the materials, but also teaches the organization of the materials for increased ability of passing the test. This course will advise on the best investment of physical products (book rack, calculator, tabs, notes), teach the way Customs approaches the classification of products in their scenario based tests, and actually use previous tests to allow students to prepare for the exam with proper markings and easier access.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to understand the questions being posed.
  • Learn how to organize materials for quick and easy access.
  • Learn how to finish the exam in the time allotted.
  • Learn how to calculate duty and taxes.
  • Learn how to assign HTS codes to products.
  • Learn how to assign details to the products using the 19 CFR.

Course Benefit:

  • Learn the mind of Customs Law and how scenarios play into Customs processing issues.
  • Mark and tab the materials for easy reference
  • Practice Exams will be used for discussion so that students are able to understand what the question is asking.
  • Practice Exams will be administered in a real world setting so the student knows what to expect.

Areas Covered:

  • Title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19CFR)
  • Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS)
  • Organization for optimal test taking
  • Strategic time management for taking the test
  • Strategic time management for studying for the test

Who will Benefit:

Professionals who are looking to become customs brokers in the United States. Some work for Customs Brokerage Houses, or other logistics companies, while others work for importers and are looking for a plus to their resumé. They don't have time to waste, and need a class that will teach them how to pass the exam.
