We ask that requests for online versions of the CTA be submitted AT LEAST three (3) business days in advance of your test date. Requests for traditional paper tests should be submitted AT LEAST three (3) weeks in advance to allow for time for your proctor to receive the test via mail.
All Travel Institute tests are proctored tests. When choosing your proctor, our basic requirements for the proctor are that they:
A) are over 21,
B) are not related to you, the candidate, and
C) are not currently preparing to take the CTA test themselves.
Proctors must be with you during your testing and will provide the link to the test as well as the password to unlock the test (if online). If you choose the paper test, they will bring that test with them on the arranged testing date.
The CTA test has a 2-hour time limit, and should be taken in one sitting. Plan a time when you won’t be disturbed for that block of time. The CTA test consists of 60 multiple-choice questions and four, short, problem-solving essay questions. Upon completion of your test, your test will be graded and you will be advised of your grade within two weeks.
We have created this General Information Sheet that you may find helpful and will answer some basic questions about the online testing experience with The Travel Institute.
Good Luck as you take this next step in your professional development.
