*The appellation for the Certified International Trade Professional (CITP®) designation in the U.S. and the E.U. is the FIBP® (FITT International Business Professional) due to trade-mark issues. Regardless of location, certificants can choose to promote themselves as a CITP, FIBP or a CITP|FIBP. The designations are synonymous. The different titles and acronyms are a reflection of international trademark ownership availability.
