Certification Exam Objectives
About the Exam
The CompTIA CTT+ certification is a cross-industry credential providing recognition that an instructor has attained a standard of excellence in the training industry. CTT+ is targeted toward all training professionals and can be applied to all technical and non-technical training. The examinations are based on a set of objectives designed to measure the core knowledge and skills that competent instructors must demonstrate to successfully complete an instructional assignment in either a classroom or virtual classroom environment.
