CompTIA Certified Trainer (CTT+), certification validates the instructor skills that the applicant has mastered in today’s learning environment. It also guarantees the applicant’s ability to teach with confidence. CompTIA CTT+ certified professionals can communicate, present, prepare, evaluate, and facilitate in a traditional or virtual classroom setting. More than 20,000 trainers are CTT+ certified worldwide today, and that number is steadily increasing.

This training program has been updated to meet the changing IT landscape. The CTT+ exam is divided into two parts: the theoretical computer-based part with multiple choice questions, and the practical video-based part in a physical or virtual environment. This certification is intended to make you a certified technical trainer.

CTT+ is trusted and accepted by top-notch organisations worldwide
Leading organizations like Microsoft, Network Solutions and Booz Allen Hamilton, Verizon and the U.S. Army consider CompTIA CTT+ a standard for ensuring that their trainers are skilled enough to teach their programs.

CTT+ increases confidence in teaching
CompTIA CTT+ certification will allow an individual to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to present, drive, analyze, and prepare a training session. To be eligible for certification, the individual must submit a video of the training session instruction. This ensures that they have sufficient teaching skills.

CTT+ validates important teaching modalities
A survey conducted by Training Associates found that 87% of respondents use ILT or instructor-led training as their main learning method. 74% of organizations have embraced blended learning, which combines ILT delivery with a mobile, video, or social component. CTT+ certification validates the skills of top instructors in both virtual and physical classrooms.

Requirements for CTT+ certification
Two fundamental requirements are required for CTT+ certification:
Computer-Based Exam (Theoretical).
First, applicants must take the computer-based exam. This test measures the applicant’s teaching skills.
Performance-Based Exam (Practical).
CTT+ certification has another requirement that must be met by the applicant. The practical video-based exam requires that the applicant record a video showing the key skills defined by IBSTPI. The instructor will be expected to demonstrate his/her actual training performance through this video. CompTIA has its own team to evaluate and review video-based training performance.

Key Differentiators
CompTIA CTT+, the only internationally recognized credential, requires a performance-based exam that is conducted via video submission. It is validated by independent scorers.
This certification is essential to assess one’s ability to instruct using various vendor-specific programs, including Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT).
