Excellent study program. The combination of the text book, cheat sheets, and previous exam analysis allowed me focus my energy and pass the exam with flying colors!
I was referred to Peter’s class by two of my fellow coworkers. Each of them have taken this class and passed the exam immediately following their attendance. After sitting in his class I can see why. Peter’s overall presentation and delivery were excellent and very informative. The material is difficult by nature, but Peter’s presentation broke the material down into easy to follow segments with a logical progression. If you have unsuccessfully taken the test or are taking it for the first time, I highly recommend this class and I will share my opinion with others.
The US Customs Broker Exam is difficult to pass, because most people don’t have the correct materials and the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable person in the US Customs Regulations and Procedures. My experience with LTS was wonderful, they provide everything you needed for the exam. The materials provided by LTS were perfectly organized to facilitate the understanding of the different procedures and connect them all at the end of the course. LTS also provides a one week seminar, where they review each area and answer questions. Mr. Peter Moyer has many years of experience working with US Customs Regulations, and Mrs. Joan Jenkins was always two step ahead with the information that we needed. They made the difference for me to arrive on the testing day ready for the Exam!

I would like to thank all the staff and instructors at Logistics Training Systems. Your materials, tips and ALL of the guides in the Students corner were INVALUABLE. I read over all of the many tips for tabbing and items to bring into the exam several times, at least monthly. My supervisor and I took the course and exam together and people were amazed at how organized and stress free we were on exam day. We were blessed with a huge testing site and a 6' table per person for the exam, that was icing on the cake after all the preparing we had done. So many people were on their 2nd, 3rd or even 8th (yes 8th) time taking the exam, I really attribute our success (both my supervisor and I passed) on your course and materials from LTS!
I passed. I could not have done it without the Logistics Training Systems materials and all the pep talk emails and on the spot support from Peter during the days leading up to the exam. His input on previous test questions was very key on helping me get those last few difficult areas down. I took everything into the exam with me and I ended up needing all of it. The cheat sheets really made the difference on answering more than one question quickly and correctly. I got help from previous test questions that were identical that I had tagged by area.
This open book test is not easy! Therefore, plan on studying for 6 months or more. It is important to follow the Logistics Training System to a tee and to do practice test after practice test. Don't skimp on tabbing your study materials either and don't over think the material. Logistics Training System gives you all the information you need to pass the test. No supplemental material is required and may only serve to confuse you more. Stick to their program and study. You'll find that finding the material is the key so make sure you spend time organizing your reference materials and practice. I had no brokerage experience. I have never worked in the industry. Maybe for me that was an advantage because I only knew what I was learning from Logistics Training System. And their system worked for me!
I credit the course work from Logistics Training Systems with helping me pass the Customs Broker Test. I totally enjoyed working through the chapters at my own pace and appreciated the support of the entire team throughout. I thought the textbook itself was an outstanding resource, and I used it quite a bit during the exam. The information in the textbook is outlined in a logical, clearly stated manner that pinpointed the answers needed for the exam.
Since this was my first exposure to the processes involved with customs and clearance procedures, I can only point to the excellent materials provided by LTS. I'm still in awe that I passed my first time taking the exam, but you can do it with the right study materials!
1. Logistics Training Systems, Inc. materials really helped me prepare and also take exams. I mostly used the materials from Logistics Training Systems, Inc. during my exam.
2. Ms. Jenkins timely advice/e-mail was always helpful.
3. Five-day course is helpful for busy professionals as we were forced to be away from the office and focus only on study.
4. I highly recommend the five-day course if you want to take exam once and pass. One time investment of your time and money you will not regret.
I would like to thank LTS for their valuable guidance; they help you to keep motivated and make the studying process easier to comprehend. For me the most valuable tool was the textbook-it has exactly what you need for the exam; but you have to study and follow the instructors directions. I would recommend this to everybody but specially to the busy professional.

This course has given me the information, resources, and support I needed toward my goal of obtaining my license. The web site has so many resources for you to listen to, and all the extra needed materials to help me understand the regulations. The instructor was easy to approach with questions and gave me the moral support to help me understand the materials, when I didn’t understand the materials. He took the time to explain it to me, so I could understand it.
I got more out of this course in the time frame of 3 months than I have found in any other course in the last 2 ½ years.
I thought that the LTS combo distant/in person Orlando program was instrumental to my success in passing the brokers exam. That being said I did spend 1-2 hours a day 6 days a week studying for 3-4 months. For me I really needed to delve into each chapter and understand the material.
I just want to thank you because with all your guidance and help I was able to pass this test. Every single detailed explained to us by Peter at the 5 day class was helpful. I had a lot of questions from your textbook on the exam or very similar. Now is time for me to celebrate thank you for all your help.
San Juan, PR
I LEARNED A LOT. The Textbooks, and all of the other materials, were very helpful. The teacher was excellent. He was very patient and answered all questions. I loved the Students Corner; it is very clean and easy to work with. All the videos are very well made, I will recommend this to all of my friends who wish to take the Brokers Exam.
First, Thanks to you, Peter and all your Team in this Big Challenge, as you were so friendly and helpfully in every sense of the word. Your team is the best in what you do and for that, there's no doubts!! I made my exam with full knowledge on the themes presented and if had Doubts I was able to find the answer in the fastest way. The Textbook, References and workbook are so, so complete. So complete that I can say that if you know the subject and studied well, with LTS materials, you can achieve almost 80% of the examination without seeking, the 19CFR or the HTS, the time frames wow, No Words!!!
This course was very comprehensive and covered all of the areas in the HTS and 19CFR. Mr. Moyer has many years of experience, and it shows, his explanations are clear and concise. I truly enjoyed the class and highly recommend it!
I am very excited to say that I was very fortunate and passed the exam. Thank you for all your encouragement and dedication to all of us in getting us ready.
The Five day course in Orlando, Fl. was very helpful and beneficial. The course helped me to reinforce the concepts that I had been learning and for review. I was able to devote more time and energy to my studies by being away from my home and work enviroment. The instructor was very friendly and very helpful. She was able to provide the real-life examples based on her experience.
I just received the good news from the CBP Broker Management office, and I passed the Customs Broker License Exam. Though it is one of the hardest things I ever pursued, it is very satisfying to know that all that hard work paid off. The LTS program played a key role in my success. Using all the materials and following plan laid out in the Logisticsts program, I felt very prepared for the test, and after appealing one question successfully, I received notice of my passing grade. Thank you LTS, your encouragement and feedback, along with the 5 day course, helped push me over the top. I fully recommend your program to anyone interested in taking and passing the Customs Broker License Exam.
You need to know what you are doing to pass this exam. With the class, materials and the teacher's knowledge you can understand and learn all the Techniques needed. I just wanted to say thank you, I passed.
Because I am a relatively new attorney and a solo practitioner, it is extremely important to me that my time and money is spent wisely. I took the CHB License course with LTS to augment my international trade practice, and if I could get my CLE requirements met for the next few years for each of these Bars, I will be able to save time and money in having to go to other (time-intensive and costly) CLEs.
Just writing to tell you and LTS that I called the Tampa port this morning and they told me I passed. Thanks for all of your help.
I wound up both passing the April Exam and receiving full CLE credit for the course from the New York Board of Continuing Legal Education, despite being initially turned down by the Board. Once the Board saw the course materials—including the HTS, the Regs and the practice exams—I think they were convinced that the course was more in-depth than most law school courses. What do you think of that?
I am new in the broker business. No actual experience. The LTS material took me from ground 0 and scared, to a good understanding of how to enter the business, get the license, and start my own brokerage. All in about eleven weeks, including work travels. It was challenging, but the LTS material made it doable and fun!
The five day classroom:
I have been in the International Logistics business for my entire career. Even though I worked with import brokers, it has been great to learn the rules and processes of US Customs. This knowledge will help me to better represent my company to customs agents and freight forwarders.
It is well worth taking the five day classroom. It will help you put you studies into perspective and gain priceless knowledge and preparation for the exam- GREAT COURSE ALL AROUND!
I liked that everything was presented in a manner that was relevant to taking the exam. The instructor was great and it helped having others around with different experience levels to get different opinions.
I had attended the other online course, which is too simple! Yours is very detailed, plus everyone I have had contact with either by phone or e-mail was very friendly and helpful and most important the responses was very quick!
I just got a call from Customs HQ, and it turns out my score was a 95% which according to HQ was the highest score in the country on the October exam.
This is just a note to thank each of you for your invaluable help in my preparation for the Broker's License Exam. I just received word from the port at Norfolk that I did indeed pass the exam! (I actually called the port myself, and the customs agent was able to tell me over the phone. :)) At any rate, I wanted to let you know that I believe you have a great program for preparing people for this test, and I would whole-heartedly recommend LogisticsTS to any potential test-taker.
I know I could not have done this without the LTS books, emails, live training, and the advice of the experienced LTS staff. I will continue to recommend this course to anyone who decides to venture down the path towards US Customs Broker.
Received my official letter stating I had passed the exam. I want to thank you and all at LTS for the training, words of wisdom, EVERYTHING that you provided, in getting me to this point. I would recommend you to anyone who was thinking about being a broker, and would definitely recommend they take the in class instruction just before the exam. I really think that is what "put me over" in being ready to take the exam.
I confirmed with the port that I passed the exam! Wooo hoo!
Thanks for all the help!
Terrific News, I passed! I can say with 100% confidence that I would not have passed this test without the guidance and knowledge of LTS. How anyone is able to pass this test without your guidance and expertise is a mystery to me. I want to thank you for all of your emails of encouragement and always being so positive and reassuring. It has been over a year that you guys have held my hand to ensure I passed this test. Thank you for always being so prompt in answering my calls, my emails and my cries of help when I felt overwhelmed and confused.
Now that I've cleared this hurdle and work toward the background check, what the heck am I going to do with this license? So many new opportunities await me! The good news is the background check takes 8-12 months so I have plenty of time to formulate my plans. The first thing is signing my name with CHB! OH YEAH!
The course was awesome, Peter is a great instructor who not only gives you a thorough grounding in the regulations, but in the testing environment as well. Couldn't have done it without you.
I decided I would take the exam four months prior to the exam and the LTS distance learning course was recommended to me by a stranger. I am a very busy working mother and was not sure I would have enough time to commit to this endeavor. I am glad I followed the advice though, as I passed it the first time. Their study materials and the way they teach truly prepares you to take this exam. The one week class prior to the exam was invaluable! Without it, I surely would not have been successful. Moreover, I really enjoyed the people in my class. I hope we are lifelong friends. Thanks LTS!
I want to say THANK YOU, to LTS. Staying with the program, studying from the text books, taking the class the week before the exam (and I think this was key, as it is so fresh in the mind, nothing to distract between the class and the exam), I couldn't of done it without you!!!!
I certainly could not have passed the exam on my first try (emphasis mine) without the course from LTS! The textbook and instructors have managed to translate the 19 CFR and HTSUS into a language that we can all understand a little bit better. The chapter review and previous exam questions were extremely helpful in getting the "feel" of the actual exam on a subject by subject basis. But most of all the constant encouragement from the instructors helped keep me from giving up.
I know I wouldn't have passed the test if I hadn't taken the course at LTS. The textbook was wonderful and provided a great quick reference. The chapter exams, as well as the practice exams in the workbook were also a big help. Following all that with the on-site class and then practicing on the past tests, I think, made the difference. Thanks for keeping us all updated and informed. You provided wonderful guidance that was a big help. I will definitely recommend the LTS program.
I took your Orlando class. I passed on the first try. Woooohooo. Couldn't have done it without your help. Thanks
Just wanted you to know that I finally received notification from CBP on June 22 that I passed the April exam. This was my first attempt at the exam. Thanks for all your help and support. I will refer anyone to your course if asked. Thanks again,
I passed! The program and training at Logistics Training Systems was exactly what I needed. You provided material and help along the way leading up to the week long training in Florida. The classroom instruction put it all together for me. If students follow your program, and put in the time and hard work, they will be successful too.
Thanks again for all the help and encouragement along the way,
I got an 81.25% and my wife got got an 83.75%
Now that all was said & done, I really would like to thank you and your company for the great support & course material we used. I feel it was most instrumental in ensuring we passed the test. The structured manner in which your course was laid out, for me, was the best way to study. I have talked to several people who have said the same thing on both accounts. It was the best money we ever spent on any course!
I passed with 62 out of the 80. Thank you for all LTS's assistance in helping to keep me focused and on track.
I passed the test with an 82.5%. Thank you Logistics Training Systems. You were instrumental in helping prepare me for the test. I have taken the test before and missed by a few questions. Your course was very thorough and extremely helpful. I also took the 1 week training session which help me focus for a solid week on nothing but US Customs.
This is the first time I took the exam, yet most of my friends have taken it many times and failed. I can tell you that , because of the workbook I found 40% of the answers. directly and 20% from notes I took from the 5 day class. If I don't pass , I'm sure next time Ill get a passing + grade because of the this course.
I benefited so much by taking this 5 day class. The instructor is such a wonderful teacher! The class was very condensed and covered almost everything in the book, but time was taken to help each student. I feel very blessed to have been enrolled in this class, and it is worth every penny that I paid! Thank YOU!
This course provides an excellent combination of elements that enhance the learning experience. The 5 day class with the human interaction of teacher and students helps cement the concepts. With out this course, studying with be a monumental task!
Because I am just starting out in customs, this course has been a great benefit to my learning. I was able, just after a few weeks, to ask questions of other brokers and understand what they were talking about. Combined with the online class, I have a much better understanding of how to use the 19CFR's and HTSUS. Being able to talk with others in the class, who were both new and experienced, was also very beneficial.
This course provided me with ALL the necessary tools and referenced to prepare me for the exam. The rest was up to me! I highly encourage ANY new student to take the 5 day seminar prior to the exam!
Thanks again to everyone at LTS. I could not have passed this test without the help of everyone involved.
The ability of this program to make the subject matter understandable is unmatched. The online resources are extremely helpful. I would recommend this program to anyone needing a good understanding of US Customs Regulations.
Without this course, I would have been too overwhelmed, not knowing where to begin in studying, not what to study! This course brings it all together and lays it out in a well planned manner.
I had a lot of fun in this seminar. My level of confidence is very up now. Good Material combined with the instructor's great sense of humor!
Thanks for Logistics!
I want to say that I attended the training this last week, and I was very pleased at the information that was supplied and the material that was covered. For being a new person to the customs area, I feel this was very much worth my time and money spent to attend. You never know what you are going to get when you sign up for trainings like this, but both the on line information and the class have been very beneficial.
The class was very informative and opened my mind to all I have learned over my years in this business in a different way. First, it helped me to organize my mind, my HTS, and my regs. It provided for me a new way to view our industry (i.e. day to day work vs. book applications and regulations.) The explanations to the textbook for the seminar were given in a way for all to understand and apply. The instructor was the best - educated, funny, interesting and organized.
This training course is well though out and presented. It is organized and has a logical flow. I feel the information was presented in a manner that suits my learning style and helped focus my studies where the needed to be. Explanations of classification and valuation were wonderful. I don't think I would have gotten to this level of understanding otherwise.
Wonderful course, superb staff at LTS, Inc. Nothing but 100% professional. The instructors were excellent, very funny and knowledgeable.
Even though I did not take this class for preparation of the Customs Broker exam, but instead for a better understanding of the regulations and processes of importing/exporting required by my job as an International Logistics Specialist...I have defiantly benefited from this class. So many topics covered pertained to my job - I have gained a better understanding and certainly gained lots of useful information.
This the best course for preparing to pass the brokers exam. It has helped me fully understand the customs regulation and classification. I now understand classification and how to apply the GRI! I strongly recommend this course to anyone who is serious about taking and passing the customs exam.
This course is very straight forward and a student will get what they invest. It is taught at a college level and all material on the exam is covered.
I took the last exam and got a 63%. I had problems understanding the 19CFR. But with the help of my Distance Learning teacher I was able to get answers and help from someone who knew what they were doing! The 5 day classroom helped me to confirm that I understood all of the material and made sure I was prepared for the exam.
I'm certain that I would not have passed if I had not taken your course. There were questions that I could answer without looking up, and many that I knew exactly where to look to get or confirm the answers. I would definitely recommend your course to anyone wanting to pass the Customs Broker exam. I found your textbook to be very comprehensive, well-organized, and easy to understand. It was great to have all of the directives provided in the workbook. The analysis of prior exam questions was extremely helpful, as were the charts you provided.
I learned more in one week in the classroom than I did in months of independent study. I would highly recommend this course to anyone involved in import or export at FedEx Express.
Do you want a compass to get out of the maze? If yes, then LTS is a good one.
Clarified all fuzzy areas. Allowed me an example to put in my reference for most of the calculating scenarios. Helped me to locate weak areas and better mark my references.
This course helped to keep me on track, helped me to understand the regs & rules. Without such, I wouldn't have had a clue! There is so much information, and this course put it all in a manageable format. The books, textbooks, workbooks and e-mail reminders were great!
These study materials worked very well. They did a great job of organizing the topics in a more understandable way. The examples also explained things well. The week course gave a great overview of all the material and it gave me a way to ask questions about the topics I did not understand.
I have taken a competitor's video course and feel that after taking the LTS course I am far more prepared to take the exam. Thank you!
It provided excellent study preparations material for the exam. Key concepts are thoroughly explained instead of getting frustrated by the 19CFR. It also provides good tips for taking the exam.
Thanks to your course, I went from knowing zero about being a Customs Broker to feeling confident that I understand the material needed to pass the exam. Your course made very difficult material easy to understand and comprehend. It was very helpful to have the material presented in several different styles- books, CD's. PowerPoint Presentations and actual classroom. What a awesome program! Thank you!
Although this student failed to pass the Exam last October, the pre April test comments are very interesting:
LTS is not the reason I failed to pass the exam. I was provided with excellent study materials. I was provided with a good on-line instructor program. I attended an extremely beneficial week-long intensive course with a good instructor. LTS was worth the investment. I failed to pass due to lack of proper preparation. I am the reason I failed. I felt good going into the exam. I felt good leaving the exam. I will pass. I know where my weaknesses lie. I know what my strengths are.
This student took our Extended Studies for Previous Students, and did pass the exam!
Your program really works. I have opened up my own brokerage up here in NY and I owe it all to you. Just wanted to drop you a line and hopefully let others know that your study course when given the proper dedication to studying will help you pass the test. Thank you so much!
I have tried other study methods & programs. They only gave me information to memorize. This program put everything into perspective, and I now have an actual understanding of what is involved in being a customs broker.
You organized all the related test questions. You have excellent explanations on the regulations. Your workbook was outstanding. Your charts were great! I will tell everybody about you!
I have only very good things to say about the Five Day Classroom Program. Everything was so well organized. I would recommend the class to everyone who wants to become a licensed CHB. I felt the class left me much better prepared for the exam, than if I had studied in my own. The material is excellent, very well structured and the teacher very knowledgeable, all the Program people were very supportive and ready to give you all the help you need for the exam. Thank you very much.
I am really glad I came to Florida to take the class. I had studied so much this summer that I thought the classroom part might not be useful. But it has been very useful! The teacher made the regulations easy to understand and then gave examples that helped me remember them. I highly recommend this course.
After attending the class all the black & white workings in the 19CFR came to life. Besides preparing you for the test it also helps you on relating to real life scenarios.
It is a very complete and intense class. Even if you don't pass the exam, what you learn here, should help you exercise more reasonable care if you work for an importer.
It is a step by step guide that will help you understand the customs regulations.
If you don't take this class - when you fail the exam, you'll wish you had!!
I strongly recommend this class to anyone and everyone who is preparing to take the Customs Broker Exam. It was very informative, and the format was very easy to follow. The relaxed atmosphere helped to relieve the anxiety and pressure of the exam.
I am very glad that I found this class. I feel considerably more comfortable with the material. The program is structured in a very understandable format, taking extremely difficult material and making it simple and easy to understand!
Excellent combination of practical knowledge and exam preparation mixed with a good sense of humor - makes for a great program! Many Thanks!
The textbook has helped me to understand much of the legalese of the 19CFR. It also aided in pointing the important points given. The class has helped immensely because the teacher made sure everyone understands. EXCELLENT CLASS. Everyone should have this experience.
I would just like to say thanks for all the help you gave me. I couldn't have passed without your help. Whenever I had a question, you always answered it and on the the same day! I definitely couldn't have passed without you.
I really want to thank you. I am positive I could never have passed the test the first time without the training and support I received from Logistics Training Systems -especially the class in Vegas. That instructor taught us how to take the test!
I would NEVER have been able to obtain this without the help of LTS. This is proof that No matter how old you are ( I am a grandmother of 9) with the right instructions, you can Accomplish anything.
