CGBP Recertification

 

How to maintain your CGBP credential

Once you become a Certified Global Business Professional (CGBP), you will be required to maintain your credential through continuing education activities. Recertification enhances professional development and sustains the value of the CGBP credential by encouraging and recognizing learning and offering mechanisms to attain professional development. 


Guidelines and FAQ

Why do I have to be recertified?

As with many professional certifications and licensures, continuing education is a key component to keeping abreast of current trends, best practices and updates in your field. The inclusion of a recertification requirement serves to elevate and protect the value of your credential by demonstrating a high level of expertise and current knowledge.

What is the cost of recertification?

The annual processing fee to maintain your CGBP credential is $50.

What happens if I fail to maintain my credential?

If you fail to maintain your credential through the formal recertification process for two consecutive years, you will forfeit your credential. In order to be reinstated, you will be required to retake the exam and incur any fees related to sitting for the exam.


How many CEUs are required?

CGBPs are required to obtain 10 CEUs per year in order to remain in good standing. Attendance and/or participation in approved CEU activities will generally be counted at a 1 to 1 ratio. For example, attendance at a two hour export compliance workshop presented by an International Trade Assistance Center will be credited two CEUs.

CEUs will not carry over from year to year. You are required to obtain 10 CEUs every year. You may obtain and request an infinite number of CEUs every year, however only 10 will count for the year and regardless of the number of CEUs obtained in one year, none will carry over to the next year.

When did recertification begin?

Recertification for all CGBP credential holders began on January 1, 2013

Those earning the CGBP credential after December 31, 2012 will begin fulfilling recertification requirements one year after the date their credential was awarded.

Example: If earn my CGBP on September 12, 2013, my recertification cycle would being on September 12, 2014 which means I will be required to submit my annual recertification payment and complete 10 CEUs prior to September 11, 2015.

Credential holders who earned their CGBP prior to December 31, 2012, have until 2017 to submit all CEU supporting documents for the years 2013-2017; however, we are respectfully requesting that CGBPs submit documents annually rather than waiting until 2017.

How do I know if a program I have attended or plan to attend will count for CEUs?

Generally, if the program covers any of the four CGBP domains (Global Business Management, Global Marketing, Supply Chain Management, or Trade Finance) and is sponsored or presented by a legitimate government agency, credit will be given. The best way to ensure credit for participating in programs, is to attend pre-approved programs.
