Associate production of the Higgs boson with other particles is crucial to evaluate the consistency of the properties of the new discovered particle with the Standard Model (SM) expectations. In particular, associate production of the Higgs boson with a pair of top quarks (ttH) allows to directly access the Higgs-top coupling, which is important to understand if the top quark, given its large mass, plays a special role in the electroweak symmetry breaking mechanism. The most recent CMS results on the search for a Higgs boson produced in association with top quarks, using the full dataset recorded at the LHC from pp collisions at centre of mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, are presented. The Higgs decays studied cover all major decay channels, such as γγ, ττ.
