One of the critical aspects of maintaining and sustaining the CTPAT security program is training. The education of employees is a vital component of the "people and physical security" focus area of the minimum security criteria (MSC). Training of personnel to recognize threats, foster awareness of vulnerabilities, and understand the important role each person plays in securing the supply chain is a requirement of the CTPAT program.

This basic-level course is designed to meet the CTPAT requirements for all employees who must understand, perform or otherwise comply with operational security measures. It will encompass all of the minimum security focus areas and the categories that "must" be met. We begin with the requirements for all CTPAT members and their business partners. The course continues by discussing the benefits, eligibility requirements, and specific criteria for Foreign Manufacturers in Canada and Mexico.

According to MSC 12.1, security training must be provided to employees, as required based on their functions and position, on a regular basis, and newly hired employees must receive this training as part of their orientation/job skills training. This course is suitable for both initial and refresher training.
