Beyond the CICP: The International Certified Credit Executive (ICCE)
Over half of FCIB’s CICPs currently maintain their designation status by earning the required continuing professional development or education points. Within this majority, many have expressed the desire for yet another means through which they can advance their career and standing within the international trade credit and finance area.
For these professionals, FCIB is pleased to present its new designation, the International Certified Credit ExecutiveSM (ICCESM). As the name implies, this executive-level designation has been created for international credit and risk analysis professionals who are ready to make an impact on the world stage by excelling beyond their CICP designation.
ICCE candidates and holders are those interested in engaging the global credit community and who place a high value on continuing education as a means to securing the information and knowledge necessary to maintain their executive status. As a member of this global community, ICCEs participate in their associations by either serving on committees, work groups or completing surveys, answering questions posted on the FCIB Discussion Board or LinkedIn page or taking a leadership role by serving as a panelist or speaker.

The ICCE Explained
Two key and equally-weighted components comprise the ICCE designation: EDUCATION and PARTICIPATION. ICCE holders embrace education as the key to staying on the cutting edge of global commercial and risk management practices and information. In addition, they are visible leaders of the global credit community through participation.
A candidate must obtain the CICP before the ICCE. To earn this academic-based designation, candidates must take and pass FCIB’s International Credit and Risk Management online course. Recertifying for the CICP will no longer be required; the designation is now earned for life.
A CICP holder must earn 40 ICEU points (20 education and 20 participation) in two years to achieve the ICCE level. The same process—40 ICEU points in two years—maintains the ICCE designation recertification. This ensures that ICCE holders remain active and committed to their profession and to keeping their knowledge current.
The FCIB Advantage
By attending an FCIB-sponsored event, ICCE holders and candidates are awarded both participation and education “advantage points,” thereby effectively “doubling” the point earned by attending FCIB events. These advantage points are not available to those attending other non-FCIB events.
