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 organizations
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 organizations 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 virtual or physical classroom.
The CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+) certification will permanently retire in 2023. CompTIA will not renew or replace this certification. Therefore, anyone preparing for it is encouraged to complete their studies and seek certification before the retirement dates.
