Program Developer Steve Webster Teaching Certified Trade Broker (CTB) Seminars 

IRTA Executive Director Krista Vardabash has announced that the Certified Trade Broker (CTB) seminar and exam will be offered at IRTA headquarters in Rochester (NY) on March 11, as well as in Amsterdam at the IRTA Europe International Barter Conference on March 25. 

Vardabash elaborated, �After announcing that the CTB would be offered to attendees in Amsterdam, we received numerous calls asking when the next test would be held in the United States.

�IRTA has always offered the CTB training and testing at our annual conference in September, and will continue to do so. But because we see a growing need for education of sound trade exchange practices, IRTA will begin to offer our educational programs at more convenient times and places for interested barter brokers.

�Even more special is that Steve Webster, the creator of the program and a IRTA Hall of Fame member, will be teaching both CTB programs in March. Webster not only developed this program, but maintains one of the most respected exchange and broker networks in the business.�

There is an application and approval requirement to attend each program. Exchanges with interested brokers should contact Krista Vardabash at (585) 424-2940, or go to: www.irta.com.
