The CTT+ certificate is a cross-industry credential providing recognition that an instructor has attained a standard of excellence in the training industry. The examinations are based on a set of objectives designed to measure the core knowledge and skills that competent instructors must demonstrate to complete an instructional assignment successfully both in a classroom and a virtual classroom environment.
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, non-technical training and education.
To earn the CTT+ designation, candidate must pass both a computer-based test (CTT+ Essentials TK0-201) that assesses knowledge and a Performance Based exam (TK0-202 or TK0-203) in which the candidate demonstrates prescribed skills.
Candidates interested in earning CompTIA CTT+ with the Classroom Trainer designation will take the CompTIA CTT+ Essentials (CompTIA CTT+ TK0-201) and then submit a recording of a classroom training session (CompTIA CTT+ TK0-202) and be evaluated and scored by certified scorers.

Trainers can be CompTIA CTT+ certified with both designations by taking CompTIA CTT+ Essentials TK0-201 and then completing both CompTIA CTT+ TK0-202 and TK0-203 performance-based exams.
