 CPTT ® Certification Process

To start the CPTT ® certification process we ask that all potential candidates submit a training application as well as submit the supporting documents specified in the application. Once your application is approved you are free to start the training. CPTT® candidates must complete two training modules, each lasting 4 days. Module dates, times, and locations can be found on the Calendar tab under the Training Schedule page starting on April 2, 2019. Supervision is required throughout the training with candidates completing a total of  10 hours of clinical supervision. Candidates are required to complete the clinical supervision and two (2) training modules within two years (24 months) of the start of the training. Once all training and clinical supervision is complete,  candidates will earn their CPTT® certification.

Current CSATs are exempt from the Supervision requirements as they have received sufficient Supervision throughout the CSAT training.

CPTT's are required to renew their certification every two (2) years from their original certification date.  Renewal requires you to earn 15 IITAP Continuing Education (CE) hours over the 2 year (24 month) period and submit the CPTT Renewal Application Form with all required documentation and fees.
