The International Trade Certification (ITC) was developed by the WTC-KY to provide the foundation for effective and efficient management of a company's international trade operations by providing information that is both current and relevant.
The Certification curriculum is designed specifically for the trade practitioner. Our three-day certification is taught by business experts, all clients of the WTC-KY, in areas ranging from banking, tax, legal, customs compliance, market intelligence, freight forwarding, international marketing and customs brokerage. The International Trade Certification course allows class participants to also learn from peers and in turn, can effectively grow their organization through international trade.
: The ITC has an alumni network of over 300 graduates representing 150+ companies and organizations to date. These alumni earn his/her certificate of "International Commerce Specialist" after three rigorous days of class time and individual testing. The International Commerce Specialist certificate is accredited by the National Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarder's Association of America (NCBFAA).
