Completion of this program in no way guarantees participants will pass the CTS-D exam, nor will this program cover all the topics listed in the exam content outline. By registering for this course, you are not signing up for the CTS-D exam. The CTS-D exam must be applied for, paid for, and then scheduled separately at a Pearson Vue testing center.
The eligibility requirements for the CTS-D exam include a current CTS credential and two years' experience with av design. Also, upon reviewing the CTS-D exam content outline, students may determine that they require in-depth instruction in some areas.
Candidates should review the CTS-D candidate handbook for a complete list of eligibility requirements for the CTS-D exam before enrolling in this course.
