The FITT Certified International Trade Professional (CITP®|FIBP®) designation is the world’s leading professional designation for global business practitioners. This prestigious, industry-validated designation is earned by meeting a rigorous set of competency standards, as set by FITT—Canada’s most trusted international trade training and professional certification authority.
The CITP®|FIBP® stands as a symbol of competency and credibility for global business practitioners. It displays a thorough grasp of international trade processes, your commitment to global trade, as well as your dedication to ethical business practices and ongoing professional development.
While the CITP®|FIBP® designation officially recognizes the level of professional competency of individual international trade professionals, the standards it embodies brings a new level of accountability and increased recognition to the skills and knowledge required for success in the industry as a whole.
I pursued the CITP®|FIBP® designation simply because it is the world’s leading professional designation for global business practitioners. It is a symbol of my dedication and passion for international business that I wear proudly for my clients.
