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.
