The CTCPA received confirmation of its ITAI qualification from the Ministry of Agriculture and Food on February 8, 2018.

- Establishments on the national territory,
- Renewed governance involving the "national" profession to a large extent, leading to a structured internal process of selecting programmes and projects at the request of the sectors,
- Attractive and diversified technical means (innovative equipment and skills),
- The stabilization of the financial situation which tends towards a resilient functioning,
- The 10-year strategic analysis conducted to redefine the key orientations.
