Advancing the credit profession


Association of International Credit and Trade Finance Professionals

Founded in 2010 – and with offices in Baltimore, US, and Oxford, UK – The Association of International Credit and Trade Finance Professionals – known as ICTF – is an independent, not-for-profit member-lead association, providing  networking and education to those who seek to widen their expertise in the field of international credit and trade finance.  With that objective in mind, ICTF proudly offers a partnership whereby CICM members can benefit from discounts on introductory first-year membership rates when they join ICTF and against ICTF/Thunderbird School of Global Management Online Course fees.

If you are looking to achieve professional development in international credit management then the ‘Registered Global Credit Professional (RGCP)’ and ‘Certified Global Credit Executive (CGCE)’ on-line programmes should be considered.  This is where international credit practitioners – both new and experienced – can take their careers to new heights.  RGCP and CGCE are professional designations supported by a rigorous programme of study backed by Thunderbird, a leading graduate school in international business worldwide.  They are a significant goal for every credit professional and are widely recognised.

Applicants with the CICM Level 5 Diploma may enter for the CGCE Certification Exam without previously taking the ICTF/Thunderbird Online RGCP Course.
