Subject to Change: AATC Education Update

by Darcy Bixby, Westdale, AATC Education Committee Chair

If you know anything about AATC’s Education Programs, then you know that we are constantly evolving, updating, and changing to make your learning experience more relevant and impactful. Unbeknownst to us, we’ve had to make an extraordinary amount of changes to our education programs over a very short period of time—all fueled by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Hopefully, the information in this post will give you an update of where we are, and more importantly, where we’re going!

Right now, we are redesigning the remaining year of education here at AATC. We’ve updated courses & programs with new and exciting content plus you will have the flexibility to attend all courses online OR in-person at the AATC Learning Center. We are happy to announce we are equipped with a ZOOMTV that will allow us to have attendees from virtually anywhere join our seminars and credential programs.

That being said, NOTHING is more important to us than that of your health and safety. We are keeping with CDC Guidelines so if you come to the association for meetings or seminars, you will be asked the appropriate COVID-19 questions and please know that face masks are required at all times while you are inside the building.

We kick-off July with CAM, CAS, and NALP along with another installment of our Pool School. Also, as part of our ever-changing environment, we will be moving our final Redbook class to an online-only format. Stay tuned for details for all of these courses and we thank you for your patience. Our Education Director, Gregory Ann Goldrick, has been working constantly to make our classes work in this new landscape and we are super excited about our current offerings. You can visit our website anytime for the most up-to-date information.

We want to say THANK YOU to Lissi Daniels, Sarah Turner, Tracy Cherry, Jimmy McClung, and Heather Cotten for providing us relevant and inspirational, live webinars as a response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 landscape. These webinars were very popular, which had over 500 attendees.

We certainly miss seeing everyone and we can’t wait to see you in-person.
