Do you have to be “CERTIFIED” to become a freight broker?

I hear this question all the time and there are many misconceptions about becoming a “certified freight broker”. The answer is NO, neither freight brokers or freight agents are required to be “certified” to legally broker freight.

There are many freight broker and freight agent training schools out there that use the word “certified”, “certification” or “certificate” as a part of their marketing efforts to make the training appear more valuable or official I guess?

If you are are planning on becoming a freight agent a certificate of completion could potentially be useful to a company that is considering hiring you as an agent, as proof that you did attend and/or pass the course.

So don’t be fooled into paying more for your freight broker training by fancy certification gimmicks like “Master Broker” or “Journeyman Broker” because the fact of the matter is, we are all just Property Brokers as defined by the FMCSA….nothing more, nothing less!
