Subscriber price: $36.00, Non-subscriber price: $52.00
Estimated total study time: 4 hours 35 minutes
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 personnel who must understand, perform or otherwise comply with operational security measures. It is suitable for drivers and warehouse personnel regardless of the particular CTPAT type of participant category of their employer. It contains the 7-point, 17-point, and TTVV seal inspection.
We begin with the requirements for all CTPAT members. The course ends discussing the benefits, eligibility requirements, and specific minimum security focus areas and the categories that "must" be met including reporting and responding to security incidents and suspicious activity for drivers and other facilities personnel that handle cargo, seals and conduct Security and Agricultural Inspections.
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.
CTPAT is an ongoing compliance effort consisting of mandatory security requirements that must be met based on certain types of businesses in the supply chain. Why do companies want to participate in CTPAT? In this lesson we begin to look at the specific requirements for participation and benefits based on business type.
