EMTC is thrilled to partner with the Global Trade Professionals Alliance (GTPA) to offer global professional certification for all trade professionals.   EMTC offers an ISO/IEC 17024 Certification of Global Trade Professionals (GTP) - the only international standard for global trade professionals across national boundaries.

Why is this standard necessary?

Global trade is more dynamic than ever before.  Global Trade Professionals need a way to stay ahead of changes  that impact trade compliance for their company or their clients.  The GTP  measures and certifies  a person's trade competence based on their current knowledge, skills and experience. This provides a baseline for growing your knowledge in new areas of trade responsibilities.  Continue your growth through Continuing Professional Education (CPD) in EMTC approved activities or events offered by us or other third parties. GTP allows a variety of experiential learning activities that go beyond classroom learning.  Contact us at education@emtc.org.  Sign up below using the proper icon in the store for the level of certification you are requesting.
