The CTT+ certificate is a cross-industry credential providing recognition that a technical instructor has attained a standard of excellence in the training industry. The examinations are based on a set of Standards designed to measure the mastery of core instructor competencies - those decisions, actions, and behaviors that competent instructors must demonstrate to complete an instructional assignment successfully.
This cross-industry certification is available to all training professionals. The CTT+ Program was created to eliminate redundancies among various instructor certification programs in computer training and education.
While it is significant that the computer industry is the first to endorse the CTT+ Program, the wider impact is that the certification can be applied to all industries that provide technical training and education. To earn the CTT+ designation, for topics such as software, technical, scientific, mechanical, and professional development, the candidate must pass both a computer-based test (CBT) that assesses knowledge and a performance (video) assessment (VBT) in which the candidate demonstrates prescribed skills.
The CBT portion of the exam is in the conventional linear format. There are 105 questions on the exam and you have 1 hour and 45 minutes to complete the exam. The exam is available in English only. The VBT portion of the exam should be 20 minutes in time length.
