CTT+ Certification CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+) certification is for instructors who want to verify they have attained a standard of excellence in the training field.

CTT+ is an international, vendor-neutral certification that covers core instructor skills, including preparation, presentation, communication, facilitation and evaluation in both a traditional and virtual classroom environment.

Two exams are necessary to be certified: CompTIA CTT+ Essentials, and at least one of the two designations: Classroom Trainer or Virtual Classroom Trainer. Candidates will need to supply a video or recording of their classroom or virtual classroom sessions.

The exam covers planning prior to the course, methods and media for instructional delivery, instructor credibility and communications, group facilitation and evaluating the training event.

Dell, Microsoft, Novell, Ricoh and IBM recommend that their trainers be CompTIA CTT+ certified. The Training Associates also look for CompTIA CTT+ certification when assigning trainers.

I like designing ways to let the right people in and keep the wrong people out. The work now is very different than when I started; it's a lot more about server security than safes and CCTV. But with CompTIA A+ behind me, I know I've got the skills and employers can see that too.
