Preparing for your Exam


The first thing you should do in preparation for the GTP® Exam is look at the Test Content Outline. It represents the body of knowledge covered on the exam and provides details regarding the level of skill and knowledge required to earn the GTP Certification.

Test Content Outline

The Test Content Outline is based on a job analysis survey of knowledge and skills needed for business travel professionals. The four major domains of knowledge tested by the examination are Strategic Business Planning, Buyer/Supplier Relations, Travel Program Administration, and Data/Analytics/Finance.

Look at the information included under each domain to assess your skills and knowledge and ascertain your strengths and weaknesses. Once you identify what you need to study, prioritize the list according to your knowledge level and spend the most time studying the topics you know least about. Another good strategy is to think about a question that could be asked for each topic.
