HOW IT WORKS & CURRICULUM
The CTFP is our advanced trade finance certification split over 9 courses, covering a range of trade finance techniques, and the final exam, all taken online. It will benefit new managers, product specialists, as well as senior transactional bankers.
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, case studies and transaction flow diagrams to help you grasp key concepts easily.
The curriculum is split between 5 core courses, that everyone must complete, and 6 elective courses, of which you must choose 4 (5 core courses and 4 electives = a total of 9 courses). You will be able to select your elective courses once you have purchased the CTFP and logged in to your account. You can see the full list of courses below.
Once you pass, the CTFP certificate is valid for three years. Details about re-certification can be found here.

"The CTFP course has boosted my career prospects. Apart from earning a promotion late last year, I now possess the knowledge and expertise required to function effectively in all the key aspects of the trade finance business (operations, product development and sales).
Ling Fong Tay
“I enrolled in the CTFP because this certification is authored by leading trade finance experts from the ICC’s Banking Commission, making it one of the most credible programmes available in the market. Each course is structured to ensure the essentials of global trade finance have been sufficiently covered.”
Royal Bank of Canada
“I see the CTFP as a perfect way for any trade finance person to (a) be part of a global community and (b) have a certification that highlights your expertise and automatically puts you at a certain level that is respected in the industry.”
“When you talk to people, and people see your credentials when you go out for conversations, the CTFP from the ICC certainly helps. They recognise that you know your stuff and understand trade finance. The ICC brings with it its own brand which is very easily recognised.”
BNP Paribas, Spain
“The use of case studies within the course helped me actively engage in identifying the trade finance principles and theories. The course is comprehensive and by the end of it, anyone can have a good understanding of key trade finance products, techniques and compliance issues.”
Southeast Bank, Bangladesh
"These days our clients – importer/exporter and the multilateral- bank/non-bank financiers are proposing solutions like working capital financing, export financing, supply chain financing, ECA etc, which fall beyond the scope of regular trade products. Having completed the CTFP programme, I can now easily negotiate/facilitate any sorts of transactions clients propose"
