FITTskills: Building Worldwide Opportunities in Today's Dynamic Global Economy, One Skill at a Time (2005)

The FITTskills program developed by the Forum for International Trade Training (FITT) offers training in the fundamental aspects of international business, building the competencies needed to compete in global markets.

FITTskills consists of eight modules that can be taken either individually or as part of a comprehensive program. The modules focus on global entrepreneurship; international trade research; international marketing; international trade finance; international trade logistics; international market entry and distribution; legal aspects of international trade; and international trade management.

Courses are taught by instructors who have international trade experience and years of practical knowledge, using a blend of structured curriculum and experiential learning.

A person who successfully completes any four FITTskills courses earns a FITT Certificate, accredited by the International Association of Trade Training Organizations (IATTO). Completing all eight FITTskills courses provides participants with a FITT Diploma, also accredited by IATTO.

Those who earn the FITT Diploma also satisfy the educational requirements for the Certified International Trade Professional (CITP) designation offered by FITT.

Established in 1992 by industry and government, FITT is a national not-for-profit organization that partners with businesses, government, educational institutions, and national organizations to develop international trade training programs and services, and to provide individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge needed to succeed in international trade.
