Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP)

The designation of Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP) represents the highest order of professionalism in the turnaround industry. Administered by the Turnaround Management Association (TMA), it provides a benchmark for practical experience, knowledge and ethical conduct. CTPs have a proven track record and years of experience in working with companies or large business units that are in financial crisis. CTPs must be or must have held positions such as, but not limited to, turnaround practitioners, consultants, or emergency managers and must demonstrate knowledge in the legal, financial and management aspects of a turnaround. The designation also provides an objective measure of expertise related to workouts, restructurings and corporate renewal. Company managers, executives at troubled businesses, lenders, bankruptcy courts and other professionals rightly demand that turnaround professionals meet an objective standard. Because of this, the CTP designation is increasingly important as a credential for engagement. The CTP designation requires the candidate to pass a rigorous three-part examination on management, accounting and law. Additional requirements include five years of experience plus a bachelor’s degree, or ten years of consulting or senior management experience. Also required are professional recommendations, client engagement write-ups, adherence to the TMA Code of Ethics, and review by the TMA Standards Committee. CTP credentials are maintained by completing a minimum of 30 hours of continuing professional education every two years. The TMA is the premier organization of professionals dedicated to corporate renewal and turnaround management. This independent, nonprofit corporation preserves the integrity and confidentiality of the CTP application, examination and approval process.
