2018 CTS Exam Changes - Overview
The CTS® certification exams go through periodic analysis for testing validity and content changes based on ANSI/ISO requirements.
Every five years, as part of our accreditation, all three CTS exams go through a review process by volunteer CTS holders, analyzing the exam content and relevance to job tasks. This results in modified exam content outlines for each exam so they remain valid and relevant to the industry.
On September 24, these content changes will go into effect.
Here are overviews of the changes for each exam:
