Why Train to be a CPT

Certifications significantly increase the employability and wages of those who earn them. There is no shortage of individuals with no skills, but those who have demonstrated their commitment to a career by earning an industry certificate will rise to the top of the list for manufacturers seeking new employees.

Class Format

The course is a 10-week synchronous online course where you will view and participate in a lecture Monday and Wednesday nights, from 6 – 10 pm from your own computer. During the lecture you may ask questions and have immediate response from your instructor. If you are unable to participate in the live lecture, a link will be available for viewing afterwards. At that point you may email your questions.

Practice quizzes and vocabulary sheets are used to further prepare the student for each exam. Study labs will be available prior to each exam where the student can review the lessons and ask questions. Additional labs and extended training may be scheduled.
