How to be ATC Approved/Get ATC Approved Again

1. Make sure you meet the ATC Teacher Requirements. You will be subject to the current requirements every time you take training (even if you have been approved before). If you have questions about the ATC Teacher Requirements, view the Frequently Asked Questions or the Faculty Requirements Chart.

2. Take Part I ATC training (a general overview of the ATC Program). If you have taken Part I ATC training within the past 3 years, you do not need to retake it.

3. Part II of ATC training is a one hour online session per requested course that provides information on the college course equivalent to the high school ATC course. The training discusses how the curriculum of the high school course should be modified to match that of the college course. Teachers wishing to be approved for more than one ATC course must take a separate Part II online session for each course. In some areas, this training may be provided by local colleges in face to face meetings as a part of local articulation meetings.

4. If you have not already done so, please make sure sealed official transcripts are mailed to the ATC Office: Advanced Technical Credit Program, 20515 SH 249, Building 11, 5th Floor, Houston, TX 77070.  Transcripts may be sent electronically from the issuing institution directly to atcstaff@lonestar.edu.

5. Your Part I and Part II training will then be reviewed by the ATC Approval Office. Once the ATC Approval Office has verified that you meet all the requirements, an e-mail will be sent to your preferred e-mail address and your ATC Approvals will be made available on this website.
