CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer
CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+) certification is for instructors who want to verify that they have attained a standard of excellence in the training field. CTT+ validates the knowledge and use of tools and techniques necessary for successfully teaching in today’s modern learning environment. The CTT+ certification program provides a globally recognised measure of core skills, actions, and behaviors that competent instructors must demonstrate. The certification validated an instructor’s proven excellence in preparation, presentation, communication, facilitation and evaluation in the classroom.
The CTT+ certificate is a cross-industry credential that provides recognition that an instructor has attained a standard of excellence in the training industry. The examinations are based on a set of objectives designed to measure the core knowledge and skills that competent instructors must successfully demonstrate to complete an instructional assignment successfully both in a physical and virtual classroom environment. This certification is targeted at all training professionals and can be applied to all industries that provide technical and non-technical training and education.
To earn the CTT+ designation, candidate must pass both a computer-based test (CTT+ Essentials TK0-201) that assesses knowledge and a performance-based exam (TK0-202 or TK0-203) in which the candidate demonstrates prescribed skills.
Earning the CTT+ certification designates you as an exceptional trainer in your field. As an instructor, you not only have to plan engaging classroom lectures, practice tasks and exams, but you must also be a knowledgeable and effective communicator. CTT+ certification provides comprehensive training standards to validate your skills in a traditional or virtual classroom environment, and ensures that you can teach effectively and step up to the front of the class with confidence.
CTT+ is trusted by leading organisations
Corporations such as Dell, Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, IBM and Ricoh accept CompTIA CTT+ as proof that an instructor is qualified to teach their programs.
CTT+ lets you teach with confidence
CompTIA CTT+ validates that you have the necessary skills and knowledge to prepare, present, facilitate and evaluate a training session. By requiring a video submission of the training session instruction as part of the certification, CTT+ ensures candidates have effective teaching skills.
CTT+ verifies essential teaching modalities
In a survey conducted by the Training Associates, 87% of respondents use instructor led training (ILT) as a primary learning modality. Moreover, 74% of organisations take a blended approach to learning, augmenting ILT delivery with either a mobile, video, or social component. Earning a CTT+ certification can validate your skills as a top trainer in a physical or virtual classroom.
The CTT+ certification exam test in and out of class teaching expertise, including preparation, facilitation and physical or virtual classroom evaluation. To earn the certification, two exams must be passed. In addition to TK0-201 (Essentials Computer Based Exam), you’ll have to pass either TK0-202 (Classroom Trainer), or TK0-203 (Virtual Classroom Trainer).
