HOW IT WORKS & CURRICULUM
The GTC is an introductory-level programme designed to help you build a foundational understanding of global trade finance solutions. It will benefit transactional and relationship managers—as well as executives from management, credit, legal and compliance functions.
The GTC includes access to 9 courses, covering a range of trade finance techniques and the final exam, all taken online. You have access to the courses and exam for 12 months, but you must complete the courses first to unlock the exam. The courses include quiz questions, video lectures and transaction flow diagrams to help you grasp key concepts easily.
The curriculum is split between 6 core courses, that everyone must complete, and 8 elective courses, of which you must choose 3 (6 core courses and 3 electives = a total of 9 courses). You will be able to select your elective courses once you have purchased the GTC and logged in to your account. You can see the full list of courses below.
Once you pass, the GTC certificate is valid for three years. Details about re-certification can be found here.

“The GTC has added value to my resume by demonstrating that I have a specialisation in international trade finance and that I have learned from an industry validated syllabus. It has provided me with solid expertise on trade finance products.”

"The GTC gave me peace of mind and more confidence when talking to clients. I needed to know how a facility worked – e.g. what documentation was required, what structure we had in place. The GTC really helped me to explain the process and upgrade my understanding. I can now have a full conversation about finance product offerings where previously I wouldn’t have been able to."
