"I would definitely recommend it as a stepping-stone to CTS®... It demonstrates in brief how many elements to the industry there actually are, and is a good indication of how the AV industry is overlapping into the IT industry."
—Mark Edwards, CTS, Operations Director, RTS Communications


The Test to Prove Your AV Knowledge

When you are new to the AV industry, you need a way to prove your knowledge, to show how you stand out from the crowd.

Steps to Getting Your AV Technologist Certificate

  2. Register for the Test

    Length: 90 minutes, 100 questions

*Remember: You are not required to take any classes or purchase any products to earn the CTS, nor does your enrollment guarantee that you will pass the exam. This is just one option that has worked for some CTS candidates.
