How to become certified

Steps to Becoming Certified

To become a certified online training professional (COTP), you must register as a candidate for the certification, complete the required course program, pass a written exam, and pass the live proficiency exam.

You apply for the COTP course program by registering online and paying the required course and certification fee. Once you are registered, you must complete the remaining steps, in order, within the next six months.

Your registration fee includes the cost of the written exam and the live proficiency exam. It includes one retake attempt for the written exam. Additional attempts for either or both exams may be purchased as needed. Flow chart
