Amatrol Technology Transfer Institute continues to expand across the United States in 2023
Jeffersonville, Indiana — Amatrol is excited to announce that College of Lake County in Waukeegan, Illinois is now an Amatrol Regional Training Center (RTC) in partnership with Moss Enterprises and will host two Instructor Training courses in 2023.
“We are proud to have College Of Lake County as a partner in expanding the reach of the ATTI training classes that are the cornerstone of Amatrol’s commitment to providing worldclass equipment, curriculum, and training to instructors in an effort to change the world one life at a time. After a recent visit, I can tell you they are the embodiment — both in institution and instruction — of what technical training should look like,” said Kent Powell, Vice President of Sales at Amatrol.
The annual ATTI courses are now open for registration. For more than 30 years, ATTI classes have delivered an advanced level of understanding for our training systems, eLearning, LMS, and more for instructors from across the country. For the first time, Amatrol is expanding its ATTI instructor training courses outside of our Jeffersonville, Indiana headquarters to Regional Training Centers, remote sites that deliver training on both technical subject matter and the implementation of Amatrol learning systems. This makes ATTI courses ideal for your instructors’ professional development and gets them up to speed faster by familiarizing them with Amatrol Learning Systems and methodologies.
