CTS Prep can help ease your nerves and boost your confidence before you take the CTS® exam. Through this course, you will practice your test-taking skills and focus on specific areas of AV design you need to focus your study time.

"I would definitely recommend CTS Prep to anyone seeking to pass the CTS exam. Some of the best information I got from the course was the memorization tricks like VIR and PIV formulas."
— John Doyle, CTS, University of Illinois Chicago
