The CompTIA CTT+ refers to the additional professional group and is aimed at checking your skills as a certified technical trainer. This designation testifies that you are capable of implementing tools and techniques intented for teaching in today’s learning environments, as well as be a great communicator and feel yourself confident while stepping up in front of the class. It also implies that you know the training standards and can implement them within the virtual or a traditional classroom environment.
The CTT+ accreditation proves that each candidate has the necessary knowledge and skills to lead a training session. The thing is that a part of the certification procedure requires sending a video submission of such a session. This testifies that all certified candidates possess top-notch teaching skills and are ready to demonstrate them. The process of obtaining this designation includes passing two exams TK0-201 and TK0-202 or TK0-203. The first exam is focused on the CTT+ essentials. It contains 95 questions of multiple choice and drag and drop types, which are to be completed within 90 minutes. The passing score for this test is 655 points from the maximum of 900. The test will cost you $338 and you should have an instructor experience of at least 6 months. The code of the second exam depends on your preference of either the classroom or virtual classroom performance. It represents a recording with instructions that should last 17-22 minutes. This part of the exam process is priced at $360.
To be completely prepared for the exam, you need to take instructor-led training, which is offered for individuals, for groups, or CompTIA Training Partners. You also should choose the format of the training which includes either in-classroom or live online.
Since all CompTIA certifications contained in the Certification Program are valid for three years, the CTT+ designation which refers to the additional professional group is good for life like all accreditations there.
Speaking of your future career you can build it in such organizations as Microsoft, Network Solutions, Dell, and Verizon. As for positions you can apply for, they include academic instructor, training consultant, career technical training instructor, and training developer/instructor.
As all CompTIA certifications are vendor-neutral, it should be mentioned that such organizations as Cisco, Microsoft, Dell, IBM, and Ricoh hire certified CTT+ instructors and allow them to teach their programs. This fact makes this designation prestigious. And to sum up, this CompTIA accreditation is reasonably demanded. To add more, having this certificate, you can earn the annual salary of about $75,000.
