CTP Certification Program
Industry-Endorsed and Standards-Based
IT and convergence professionals worldwide have used the CTP certification to validate their mastery of voice, data and convergence technologies.
Market demand is growing for professionals who can prove their knowledge and skills in the convergence technology arena. Furthermore, professionals must be educated in technology standards before receiving vendor-specific training. CTP does that!
- Designed by industry leaders – CTP was originally developed by Certification Partners with the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA) to enhance the convergence technologies business environment by promoting the use of skills and knowledge standards in the industry and the workplace. CompTIA now manages the CTP program.
- Endorsed by industry leaders – The CTP certification represents the collaborative efforts of leading industry manufacturers worldwide, including Avaya, Inter-Tel and Toshiba. These industry leaders understand the critical need for a broad-based certification to serve as a foundation for their vendor-specific learning programs.
- Vendor-neutral and standards-based – As customer needs and technology advancements continue to evolve, a proven standards-based learning approach is needed to ensure that personnel have a comprehensive view of the methods, concepts and best practices of converged networks
The CTP Exam
The CTP certification exam validates core knowledge of convergence industry standards and protocols. It is a high-stakes, computer-based proctored exam. The CTP certification differs from the CCNT (Certified in Convergent Network Technologies) program in many ways. CCNT is an un-proctored, open-book program that serves as an entry-level introduction to convergence technologies. It is recommended that an individual has attained the knowledge level of CCNT before preparing for the CTP exam, or have a minimum of 18 to 24 months of experience in all three subject areas to take and pass the CTP exam.
