Atc Approvals Frequently Asked Questions

3. How does the ATC approval process work?

1.  RECEIVE APPLICATION: We receive your application from the online training.

2. VERIFY PART I & II TRAINING: The office verifies that a teacher has  completed both Part I and Part II training. Both trainings must be current (done within the past 3 years) for a teacher to be eligible for approval.

3.  VERIFY TEACHER ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: The office verifies that a teacher meets all the requirements for each course for which they took Part II training (also see FAQ – ATC Teacher Requirements Questions for more information). Sometimes the ATC office must ask for additional documentation before  an application can be approved. This information will be requested  by email to the address listed on the application.

a.  TEACHER MEETS REQUIREMENTS: If a teacher meets all the requirements for a course, the course approval appears on their ATC approval certificate along with an expiration date for the approval (course approvals are good for 3 years). The teacher should receive an email message letting them know that approvals have been added to their certificate.

b.  TEACHER DOESN’T MEET REQUIREMENTS: If the information provided on your application shows that the teacher does not meet the requirements for a course they will be sent a notification letter. The letter will list the unapproved courses and explain why they were not approved.
