The Foreign Trade Association is offering a course in preparation for the April 2018 Customs Broker License Exam. The 10 week exam preparation course is taught by Erik Smithweiss of Grunfeld, Desiderio, Lebowitz, Silverman & Klestadt LLP, a partner resident in the firm’s Los Angeles office. The course starts on Monday, February 5, 2018. This course is highly successful for those planning to take the broker’s exam and also provides an excellent overview of customs law and compliance for importers not intending to take the broker’s exam.
