Since our inception in 1999 CTS has always valued our students and we always strive to provide education beyond academics. Throughout the years we have partnered with our many stakeholders including students, lecturers, ACTT, our staff and partner institutions to ensure quality education was being delivered; and while do so, accomplishing quite a few feats along the way! These accomplishments have cemented our place in the tertiary education sector as an institution that is student centered and quality driven. It is testimony to our consistent performance and a true reflection of what we stand for and strive to achieve at CTS College, Education Beyond Academics.
It serves as a humble reminder that our students are our greatest asset and the awards would not have been possible without them.

CTS College was crowned the Debate Titans 2017 on November 2, 2017, after winning the finals of the debate competition organized by The Trinidad and Tobago Securities and Exchange Commission (TTSEC).
The motion debated was "Be it resolved that in the interest of investor protection the TTSEC's regulatory focus should be on enforcement." CTS College argued for the motion while the other finalist, Institute of Law and Academic Studies (ILAS) argued against. The battle was shrill, the debate was passionate, patriotism surrounded the atmosphere, articulation and wit filled the podiums and in the end when the smoke cleared the CTS College debate team emerged victorious!
CTS College was duly represented by Suzette Matterson, Rachael Collymore and Richard Barbour.
The Winners received: $3000 each to invest in the stock market courtesy the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange, Fire HD 8" Tablets, medals and certificates of participation.
