It is an international, vendor-neutral certification that covers core instructor skills, including preparation, presentation, communication, facilitation and evaluation in both a classroom and virtual classroom environment.
Two exams are necessary to be certified: CompTIA CTT+ Essentials TK0-201 , and at least one of the two designations: Classroom Trainer TK0-202 or Virtual Classroom Trainer TK0-203. 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.
Adobe, Dell, Microsoft, Novell and Ricoh recommend that their trainers be CompTIA CTT+ certified. The Training Associates also look for CompTIA CTT+ certification when hiring trainers.
