Certificate in International Trade

International Trade Certificate Program

The Institute’s Certificate in International Trade Program is designed to build a comprehensive set of skills that help you assess the opportunities and risks encountered in international business. Upon completion of our trainings, you will be equipped with the knowledge and credentials needed to succeed in a globally competitive marketplace.

To achieve certification, participants must attend trainings covering 48 hours, one World Trade Day conference, and one World Trade Center Denver Annual Membership Gathering. The trainings can be completed in one term, although courses may be taken at your own pace across multiple terms, not to exceed three years. Upon completion of the program, graduates will receive a certificate.


You are welcome to take classes at your own pace. This allows for you to select only the classes that are more interesting to you. However, all of the requirements must be completed within a 3 year time span. Typically, it take the average participant about 1 year to complete the entire program.


Trainings and events may be paid for individually as you progress or you may purchase the entire certificate at the beginning for a discounted price:

Members: $1400

Non-Members: $2800

Student Members: $800

*BIS: Complying with US Export Controls and Incoterms®2020 with Frank Reynolds (ICC Training) trainings are not included in the discounted price.

Getting the Certificate in International Trade was nothing short of transformative for Katari. I came in thinking what else can I really learn about International trade? I was so wrong. All classes, even the ones that I thought would be too simple to take, turned out to teach me deep enough lessons. As a result, I changed the structure and approach of my business to international trade completely. I am equipped not just with knowledge from WTC Denver classes, but also with an incredible support structure of people whose enthusiasm and knowledge shatter your expectations about where you can go with your business. Nothing but enormous gratitude and appreciation for the doors WTC Denver opened.
