Certified Technical Professional (CTP)


The Certified Technical Professional (CTP) program is designed to serve graduates of both 2-Year and 4-Year Programs. The exam is broad-based, geared to technical programs without a management component that result in either an associate (AS, AAS) degree or a baccalaureate (BS, BA) degree.

The CTP Examination can be used for individual certification and for program assessment. The exam is an *open-book, 150-question, multiple choice examination with questions on Applied Mathematics, Engineering Graphics, Production Planning & Control, Safety, Quality, and other rudimentary questions pertaining to Algebra, Trigonometry, and English. This exam's content may be more appropriate for AS program students and assessment of AS programs. Passage of the exam is determined by a cumulative score of 72 points or higher.
