ATI Annual Conference in Seattle, WA, USA, October 29 – November 2, 2017, with "ATI Teacher Certification" Processing sessions days on November 2 and November 3, 2017.

If you are attending this year's Annual Conference in order to become an ATI Certified Teacher, the upcoming ATI Annual Conference certification processing session days offer a wonderful opportunity.

The afternoon of November 2 and the morning of November 3 are the only times that the ATI Teacher Certification processing sessions will be offered.

In order to help us administer a smooth process, please carefully review the following information:

1. We can only schedule as many certifying sessions as we have staff and time to cover. The sessions can require not only Sponsors, but translators, volunteer students and a space in which to work. We need to have all this organized in advance, so please register well before the cutoff date of August 1, 2017.

2. We accept applicants in the order in which we receive the applications.

3. Please register early as to ensure that you will have a slot in the certification processing sessions.

4. When you register for the entire ATI Annual Conference, all certification process sessions are included in your $230.00 Conference registration fee ($330.00 for Non-Members). You will then be required to submit your teaching member annual dues with your finished application to ATI. Teaching member dues are separate from the ATI Annual Conference registration fee.

5. If you are only coming to participate in the certification process without attending the ATI conference, please note the following:

  • We charge $75.00 for each certification process session
  • This fee only covers the ATI certification process. Teaching Member dues from the day of certification is additional.

6. Important: Registration can be completed by clicking on the “Registration” tab below.

7. Give your attention to reviewing the basic requirements outlined in ATI’s “Criteria for Certification as an ATI Teaching Member.”
