Certified TIA-942 Internal Auditor

The Certified TIA-942 Internal Auditor (CTIA®) course is a two-day intensive course that builds further on the technical understanding of the standard acquired in the CTDC® (Certified TIA-942 Design Consultant) course.

It enables participants to develop skills and knowledge to conduct an internal audit program by applying widely recognized audit principles, procedures and techniques which are aligned with the ISO-19011 auditing guideline. EPI and EXIN work together with EXIN Accredited Training Providers (ATP’s) on the EPI Data Centre certificates. Therefore you can only book your EPI exams at the official EXIN ATP’s.

Target group

CTIA® is a course designed for senior quality assurance professionals and managers, enterprise managers responsible for governance and risk management, technical experts, project managers and consultants, internal auditors, compliance officers - virtually anybody involved in ANSI/TIA-942 compliance certification-related projects, either from an end-user or vendor perspective.


For many organizations across the world ANSI/TIA-942 has become the data centre standard of choice. This trend is increasing. It is imperative for these organizations to verify the correct implementation of the standard through a stringent audit process which is aligned with the ISO guidelines for auditing.
