Welcome to CITA
The Institute of Export is proud to present a unique qualification in international trade - the Certified International Trade Advisor (CITA).
CITA is an online training and assessment programme leading to an online multi-choice examination which will provide robust evidence of a level of competence and professionalism in providing international trade advice to your customers.
The programme has been developed by The Institute of Export (IOE) in response to a number of issues:
a need evidenced by its members for a meaningful form of accreditation of international trade advisors
a need for international trade advisors themselves to evidence their competence
a need for organisations providing such advice to evidence such competence to external regulators such as the Financial Conduct Authority
