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 trainings 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.
As updated information becomes available, we will communicate to you and post updates to the events page on https://atixa.org/events/training-certification/.

Digital badges are an increasingly popular tool for employees to denote their achievements, illustrate skill accumulation, and convey professional competence and excellence. A digital badge is an indicator of accomplishment or skill that can be displayed, accessed, and verified online. The badge includes information on who earned the badge, what the badge represents, how it was earned, when it was earned, and who issued it. Digital credentials allow employees to present a rich and trustworthy record of their professional development, easily shared on social platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as inclusion in email signatures.
Attendees of any Certification Course will now be able to expand their current options for verifying certification in a more public, visual, digital, and social, displaying badges for each certification so that colleagues, students, and potential employers can recognize your training and professional development. Attendees will receive notification following completion of the training on how to access their badge.
PLEASE NOTE: Certification refers to attendance at a qualifying event; The NCHERM Group cannot speak to individual attendees’ knowledge, expertise, or command of the material.
All registrations for 2020 trainings include complimentary one-month Individual Trial Memberships for attendees who have no previous membership history with ATIXA. Active trial members have access to the full benefits of the corresponding membership level. ATIXA’s policies provide additional guidance regarding complimentary trial memberships.
