AMBER Alert Onsite Training

AATTAP will continue to bring you live, instructor-led training events using a virtual format in the event you prefer that approach over travel/in-person training due to COVID-19 concerns or restrictions.

Some important information about AATTAP's live, virtual instructor-led courses:

  • Moderated by AATTAP staff and associates
  • Delivered by subject matter expert instructors
  • Interactive - participants use their web cameras and microphones to engage with instructors and each other through breakout room exercises, Q&A sessions, polls and other activities
  • Participation in the full duration of the virtual course is required to receive a certificate of completion (attendance is monitored, and participants are expected to arrive to each session of the course on time).
