CTTP Safety Policies

CTTP is making every effort to re-open safely according to the policies of the University of Arkansas and the Arkansas Department of Health, while providing the same quality training and certification events you deserve. It is very important that attendees review the current policies for attending CTTP one-day testing sessions.

To avoid a lapse in certification, technicians may pursue temporary certifications by registering for the class waiting list and completing the online modules and quiz. Note that the temporary certification option will be ending July 1, 2021.
