A Note from ATIXA

At ATIXA, the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, staff, and colleagues is of primary concern, and we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely. After careful consideration and in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, ATIXA has made the decision to reconfigure all in-person events through April 30, 2020 to an online format. The events listed below will now be offered virtually so attendees can still receive the training and certification as planned but without leaving home! The appropriate format for events scheduled after April 30, 2020 will be assessed as additional details become available.

The current schedule of Regional Training Events can be found below. As updated information becomes available, we will communicate to you and post updates to the events page on https://atixa.org/events/training-certification/.

The following training sessions will now be offered virtually. Upon registration, attendees will receive a code to sign into the training via Zoom Web Conferencing Services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are the virtual trainings listed above still open for registration?

Absolutely! Now is the time to take advantage of the ability to receive a certification while you are working remotely. If your institution instated travel restrictions or you are required to work remotely, this may be an ideal opportunity to continue your education! Registration is limited but still open for all events.

Will the trainings be interactive?

Yes! ATIXA is working diligently to ensure each training includes multiple Q&A sessions, polls to assess attendee input, and an assigned moderator who will work one-on-one with the consultant.

Will additional trainings be offered virtually?

At this time, we are focused on trainings through April. If the Centers for Disease Control requires social distancing beyond April, we will continue to offer training sessions in a virtual manner. Therefore, when you sign-up for one of our trainings scheduled beyond April, you will automatically be given the option to attend that training virtually or move your registration to another event. We will reassess our alternatives within the next few weeks and provide an update on all future events.

Do I have to sign-up for a Zoom account?

No, once you register for a training, you will receive a specific link that allows you access to the training. This link will allow you to sign-in each day. The link will activate for the person assigned to the email address provided at registration.

How long will the training sessions be?

All trainings are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m. each morning. The same agenda will be followed for all virtual events. You can expect a mid-morning and mid-afternoon break as well as a one-hour lunch. Keep in mind all training sessions will be held in the time zones in which they were scheduled.

Will ATIXA still accept applications to host?

Yes, ATIXA is still reviewing applications to host for dates beyond August of 2020. Additional details can be found here.

Thank you to all members of our community for your understanding and support during this challenging time. We are proud to be able to continue to offer you the quality trainings you have come to love. We look forward to learning with you online!

Stay well,
