If you are a treasurer or looking to become one and you are studying for the Certified Treasury Professional exam, Varsity Tutors can help with CTP prep courses. We can sign you up for CTP prep classes that have a qualified instructor who can work with you one-on-one. By taking advantage of personalized CTP classes, you can receive many benefits that a traditional classroom may not provide.
Every CTP class session can be planned to meet your specific needs at the time that you sign up. Your first CTP course will be spent getting familiar with your starting proficiency level in the subjects covered on the test. The tutor can use this information as a foundation to plan a set of CTP courses that tackle the areas that you find the most challenging. The entire time, a tutor can track how you are doing and make adjustments to the CTP course lesson plans as necessary. For instance, if you are already adept in capital markets and funding, your instructor can easily change the CTP class to focus on cash and liquidity management instead. This lesson plan flexibility helps tutors make the time they spend with you effective and efficient.
The table below will help you get familiar with how many topics are on the exam and how many questions per section:
|Topics||Number of Questions|
|The Corporate Treasury Function||30-35|
|Cash and Liquidity Management||37-42|
|Working Capital Management||32-35|
|Capital Markets and Funding||22-24|
|Treasury Operations and Controls||21-24|
As you proceed through the customized sessions of your CTP prep course, you will be studying with the goal of learning all of the information covered on the exam to a point that you are comfortable with it. Below is a list of some of the topics you will encounter on the exam:
Topic List (Non-Comprehensive)
- Role of Treasury Management
- Treasury Organizational Structure
- Cash Management and Forecasting
- Payment and Collection Systems
- Working Capital Philosophy and Tools
- Short-Term Investing and Borrowing
- Capital Structure and Dividend Policy
- Sources of Capital
- Treasury Systems
- Operational Risk Management
Your instructor can help you as you dive further into the subjects listed above. They can teach you valuable methods of study to help you save time and energy and make your study sessions worth your time. If you learn better through seeing the material presented, your instructor may use flashcards, charts, graphs, and more to help you visualize what you are learning. On the other hand, if you learn better through hearing things, your instructor may present information in a Q&A format. Additionally, if you need to have your learning methods switched up, your tutor can use a variety of methods to keep you interested and engaged.
As you probably can guess, the more time that you put into your CTP prep, the more prepared you will be on test day. A skilled instructor can work alongside you to help you get the most out of your study time. Your tutor wants to see you succeed and follow your improvements, so they can show you the best chances to improve your score and help you focus there.
