International Credit and Risk Management Online CourseCreated by FCIB in partnership with the US Department of Commerce and Michigan State University.

FCIB, the premier association of Executives in Finance, Credit and International Business, offers a unique educational opportunity to export professionals and companies. FCIB has developed an on-line course in international credit management with a Market Development Cooperator Program grant awarded by the US Department of Commerce in 2001. The FCIB on-line course, which was unveiled in September 2003 with much success, helps US firms, especially SMEs, develop the credit management skills they need to compete and succeed in the international marketplace such as offering competitive export financing and credit to overseas buyers, assessing risks, and effectively using risk mitigating tools and techniques. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will have the opportunity to take the online certification exam and be awarded the "Certified International Credit Professional" designation.
