CTC - Canada training credit

I downloaded the CTC info from the CRA into my ufile. It shows $250. I believe I can not claim the training credit unless I get a qualified training, correct? So why it shows a form filled with the $250 downloaded from the CRA?

The Canada training credit (CTC) is a refundable tax credit available to help Canadians with the cost of eligible training fees. You can claim the CTC for tuition and other fees paid for courses that you took in the year.

The CTC is a credit issued every year since 2019. If not used in the current tax year, it is eligible to carryover to future years.

From CRA: ... n-get.html

"Your Canada training credit limit (CTCL) for the year is shown on your latest notice of assessment or reassessment. Every year, if you file an income tax and benefit return, the CRA will review the criteria and increase your CTCL by $250 if you qualify, up to a maximum of $5,000 in a lifetime.

Even in years where you make a claim for the CTC, you can still accumulate $250 in your CTCL for the following tax year."
