Candidates may earn additional CTB eligibility points if they have completed formal education such as being granted a Bachelor's or a Master's degree.
TIA also offers an online CTB Home Study Course that lasts for a period of up to 17 weeks in addition to sponsoring the examination. The course, which entails rigorous study, helps to prepare those individuals who are seeking CTB certification to prepare for the examination. More than 1,600 participants have earned the much sought after CTB designation.
