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.

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.

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.
