We support and organise exams for all levels of certification in Europe: CTA, CTA Trainer and TSTA. We also run TEW workshops for people starting their PTSTA journey. Professionally and ethically the challenge is to organise exams that let the candidates grow and have an as objective as possible process. Sometimes that leads to appeals by the candidate, which we need to deal with thoroughly and carefully.

Procedure for applying and running COC TA examinations
- The National Association applies to COC to organise examinations: This needs to be at least 14 months before the date of exams, and must be done by the President/Chair of the Association. He/she also specifies whether it is intended to hold both CTA and TSTA exams or just CTA. COC will discuss and accept or reject the application at the first possible meeting or, if needed, by email.
- The President/Chair of the N.O., (or the delegate officer) in consultation with relevant people within his/her organisation, may also suggest an exam supervisor or supervisors at least nine months before the exam.
- COC will receive the request and confirm it at the next meeting including approving the exam supervisor. If preferred, COC and the Supervising Examiner will provide names of exam supervisors.
- COC will send a pack of information to the exam supervisor(s) to facilitate their job (e.g. job descriptions of all people involved in the exam process, contract for organizing exams, budget form, scoring forms, draft letters to candidates and examiners, etc.).
To be an examiner for an ITAA/IBOC exam:
Examiners must be at least a CTA for a CTA exam or a TSTA for a TSTA exam, they must also be a member of EATA or ITAA.
To arrange to take an ITAA exam (IBOC) please send your application to: Janet Chin, Training & Certification Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about IBOC exams can be found on the ITAA website (www.itaaworld.org )
Some important notes on exams
Exams are subject to availability of examiners/exam supervisors. COC/IBOC are not responsible for expenses incurred when unavailability of examiners/exam supervisors causes exams to be cancelled or postponed.
EATA / COC CTA exam candidates who are doing the COC written case study must submit it no later than six months before the oral exam date. Details/application available from the COC Language Coordinators.
