The NASBITE CGBP certifies that a candidate is competent in four primary areas:
Within each area are the following five "threads," which are topics that cross all four areas:
Within each of these areas and threads, there are tasks and knowledge statements tested through the CGBP exam.
The NASBITE CGBP doesn't certify that a candidate is an expert in each of the four domains. It certifies that a candidate is proficient in the tasks and knowledge generally associated with a practitioner who's worked in global trade for two years.
Candidates who receive the NASBITE CGBP designation may use the credential logo and word mark on resumes and business cards, which will identify them to employers and the public as individuals proficient in global commerce. For companies, the certification establishes a professional development goal for current and future employees. The credential also helps individuals diversify their skills in global commerce and assures they understand a broad range of topics rather than just the specific field they have experienced within international trade.
To receive the NASBITE CGBP designation, a candidate must pass the CGBP exam and have completed either two years of college-level study or have worked in global commerce for two years.
The CGBP exam is a multiple-choice exam covering the four areas and five threads. The exam is offered in major U.S. cities at various times during the year. Locations and dates are posted on www.nasbite.org under Exam Locations.
