EXAMINATIONS

We support and organise exams for all levels of certification in Europe: CTA, CTA Trainer and TSTA. 

Professionally and ethically the challenge is to organise exams that let the candidates grow and have an as objective as possible process. Sometimes that leads to appeals by the candidate, which we need to deal with thoroughly and carefully.

  • The President/Chair of the N.O., (or the delegate officer) in consultation with relevant people within his/her organisation, may also suggest an exam supervisor or supervisors at least nine months before the exam.
  • COC will receive the request and confirm it at the next meeting including approving the exam supervisor. If preferred, COC and the Supervising Examiner will provide names of exam supervisors.
  • Budget for exams form July 2010
