On another note, South Texas College announced its latest partnership agreement, launching a Certified Customs Specialist Certification to be facilitated by the National Customs Brokers Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA) Educational Institute.

At a special ceremony, South Texas College president Dr. Ricardo J. Solis signed the official partnership agreement and participated in a program ribbon cutting with NEI that begins recruitment efforts for students.

“We are driven by creativity, innovation and responsiveness,” Solis told attendees at the event. “We are now clearly uniting our forces to be able to combat what’s taking place in this whole global market. We know we are challenged by supply chains, just-in-time inventory, off-shoring, and most importantly lack of skilled personnel, which we have seen in every industry. This is a perfect example of how a certificate, in this case one for a Customs Specialist, can clearly send a message saying this is what it’s going to take to meet the needs of industry and especially the growth needs of the Valley. This is just the beginning.”  More details inside.
