CTP Certification

Convergence Skills

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.

Now, the CTP program has become the de facto standard for education and certification in these fields.

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.  
  • 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 consisting of 65 multiple-choice questions. Those who pass this exam earn the highly respected CTP certification.

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.
