CTS Could Give You a Bigger Paycheck

According to the AVIXA® 2020 META: Pro‑AV Channel Employment Report, certifications provide a substantial return on investment:

“CTS accreditation is worth a little more than a 7% raise, a more advanced CTS‑I (Certified Technology Specialist‑Installation) designation is worth about a 14% raise, and the most advanced CTS‑D (Certified Technology Specialist‑Design) is worth an almost 30% raise.”

If you have been thinking about getting a specialized designation, or adding another one, this is a potential benefit to keep in mind.

If you make hiring decisions for your organization, this report can help you navigate current trends. Discounts available for Silver and Gold level Enterprise Members.
