Wednesday, November 25, 2015 (Scottsdale, USA) – Becky DeStigter, MBA, MS, has just been fully certified by the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) as a FITT International Business Professional (FIBP®). Becky chose to complete this certification on FITT’s Executive Path, using her 10 years of international trade experience and graduate education to form the basis of her application to be permitted to take the FITT Professional Exam and submit for final approval.
“I chose the FITT program certification because I wanted to join the growing global standard in international trade. There are many charlatans working in the industry who are not able to deliver substantive or reliable international business advice or outcomes. By earning this accreditation I join a group of well-trained professionals with a growing global footprint.
Working in a such a rapidly evolving field, I needed to know that my certifying organization had periodic content reviews to ensure that the international trade strategies and tactics reflected today and not ten or even two years ago. FITT stays on top of the international trade industry with frequent reviews,” said Becky.
FITT is a non-profit international trade training and professional certification organization based in Ottawa, Canada. The network of CITP®|FIBP® certified international trade professionals continues to grow and expand its influence. FITT is endorsed by the World Trade Centers Association.
