Candidates should review the CTS-D Candidate Handbook for a complete list of eligibility requirements for the CTS-D exam before enrolling in this course.

Prerequisites: It is strongly recommended that students take Design 1, 2 and 3, or be experienced designers. CTS-D Prep is intended as a final review of the material covered in these courses before the exam.

Course Features:

• Explore the CTS-D exam format.

• Learn test-taking strategies, processes and what to expect the day of the exam.

• Review design terminology and AV design math skills.

• Study the processes associated with designing an AV environment and infrastructure.
