Certified Training Professional (CTP) is an international qualification in training which was developed by the ECDL Foundation and is licensed in Ireland by ICS SKILLS. CTP defines an objective standard for instructor led training and provides a mechanism for trainers to have their competence recognised and certified.

FAS has officially recognised the CTP qualification as a basis for inclusion in the FAS/EI Register of Trainers.

This 3 day certification course is designed for trainers with experience. Following the 3 days, a portfolio of evidence is prepared and together with a training video, are assessed by the CTP Tutor in the first instance, and is subject to a second review by the CTP Internal Verifier. A third level of assessment is provided by the CTP External Verifier who reviews a random selection of certification applications, to ensure that the correct procedures have been followed and that the judgement of the CTP Tutor and Internal Verifier is fair.
