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.

Maintain Your Certification
CTS certifications are awarded for a period of three years. To maintain your certification, you must complete minimum levels of continuing education during each three-year period and must reaffirm your commitment to the CTS Code of Ethics and Conduct.
Show Your Certification
First, be sure you have claimed your digital badge. These digital badges can be used in email signatures, personal websites, social media sites such as LinkedIn and Twitter, as well as on electronic copies of resumes.
