Trade Compliance Certificates vs. Certification: Buyer Beware!

Trade compliance professionals need to understand the difference between a certificate program and a certification program before paying for import and export compliance education, training and testing courses according to an article in the August 2010 edition of The Export Practitioner.

Written by trade compliance educator/consultant John Priecko and certification consultant Betty Fishman, the article discusses the recent proliferation of providers claiming to offer certifications for trade compliance professionals.

In addition to discussing the key differences between certificate and certifications, the article provides some "red flags" to look for in claimed certification programs.

The article concludes by advocating an independent standards organization to oversee trade-related education/training and states that such an organization can serve as a clearing house for trade compliance best practices benchmarking.
