Customs Brokerage Technical Certificate


Thurston Shrader • (901) 333-4423

The tremendous growth and expansion of international trade has generated the need for a greater understanding of the import/export process. This is especially evident in Memphis, a major international distribution center. The primary educational objective of this program is to provide practical experience working with documents and processes used by customhouse brokers. Through a detailed understanding of the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States and Customs Regulations, students will be able to apply knowledge to actual business applications. Also, upon the completion of this program the students will have gained practice to master the questions that appear on the United States Treasury Department’s Customhouse Brokerage Examination.

Total Credit Hours: 15


During the final courses it is expected that the student will also be preparing for the U.S. Department of Treasury Customhouse Brokerage License.
