The IFC FIT Initiative is a Finance of International Trade Certification Program which was established by the International Finance Corporation through eBSI Export Academy to train Trade Finance Professionals in IFC Issuing Banks in selected countries of Bangladesh and Pakistan in 2008.  The program expanded in 2009 to include Cambodia and Vietnam and a further expansion in 2o10 brought in a regional program in East Africa and a program in Nigeria.  In 2014 following over 700 graduates passing through the IFC FIT Program, the IFC FIT Initiative was opened to all trade professionals worldwide with the intention of establishing a global trade finance certificate, accredited by the Institute of Export UK who provide an optional second certificate for program participants.
