New course from MCC gives education professionals additional credentials
OMAHA, Neb. — The Workforce Innovation Division at Metropolitan Community College has introduced the CompTIA Certified Technical Trainer (CTT+) certification course, giving education and training professionals a chance to improve their résumé at a time when virtual learning is becoming more popular. The certification provides training standards to validate skills in a traditional or virtual classroom environment, ensuring students can speak to a class with confidence.
“Virtual classrooms have become essential during the pandemic to ensure a safe learning environment,” said Robert Caldwell, MCC workforce training manager and adjunct instructor. “But as education and training facilities begin to reopen their doors, some experts suspect that learner preferences have shifted and demand for virtual training will be much higher than before the pandemic. The certification course validates new or experienced training professionals understand and can apply the best practices to teaching in a virtual classroom environment.”
The certificate is an industry-accepted standard of excellence to teaching in a virtual or traditional classroom. It not only validates skills as an effective trainer, but it can also be an asset to career advancement. With this certification, education and training professionals can standout when seeking positions in their field.
