Each Friday, the Wizard joins us to share an answer to one of the questions asked during the week. This week, we have another questions about brokers.

Why do people become licensed customs brokers?

Becoming a licensed customs broker can require a lot of hard work; however, obtaining a license can provide several benefits such as

· Increased knowledge of the HTSUS and Regulations.
· Increased value to an employer.
· Improved chances of promotion to certain positions.
· Opening doors to other positions outside of working for a customs broker.
· Allowing people to open their own customs brokerage office.

The education and experience is priceless and no one can take them away from you. The Wizard took the exam many years ago for the challenge, educational benefits, as well as the promotion and earning potential. The investment of time and money was worth it!
