The CTEP designation is given by the Society of Talent Entertainment Professionals (STEP) and its certification committee. The designation shows your professional achievement in the entertainment industry. It is earned through education, performance, experience, and service to the industry, and reflects a commitment to professional conduct and ethics.
As a recognized organization for Entertainment Professionals, STEP certifies entertainment professionals through the Certified Talent and Entertainment Professional designation. The CTEP program is practice-based. It is not intended to teach individuals how to effectively become an Entertainment Professional rather, it is designed to measure an individual’s “knowledge-in-use” – the application of knowledge and skills by those with real-life experience in this role.
