Refer a Friend to Become a CTA This Year, and Receive a Complimentary Renewal!

If you refer a friend to the CTA Program and they earn their certification at any of the remaining 2017 classes, your 2018 or 2019 renewal fee will be waived. How to ensure you receive credit for your complimentary renewal:

1.) The candidate must email Robbie your name as their referral source after they have completed their online enrollment for a 2017 class.
2.) Once they attend the 2017 class and successfully pass the exam, I will apply payment to your 2018 renewal (or 2019 renewal if you have already paid your 2018 renewal).
