About the program

Welcome to the Certified ATLAS.ti Professional Trainer Program (CAPT)! (ATLAS.ti Windows)*

Certified ATLAS.ti professional trainers are qualified to provide competent consultation and training services in ATLAS.ti 7 Windows. The following are the requirements to join the CAPT program:

  • To have graduated from an academic program.
  • To have participated in at least one analysis project using ATLAS.ti. This could be a thesis or dissertation project.
  • To demonstrate expertise in ATLAS.ti and its application to the qualitative data analysis process.

If you meet these requirements, you are welcome to apply for professional trainer certification. The application process includes the following steps:

  1. Online application questionnaire. In this questionnaire, we will ask you questions related to your experience using ATLAS.ti and your knowledge of the fundamentals of the program. If your answers demonstrate that you meet the experience and knowledge requirements listed above, you will be asked to go on to the the second stage of the application process.

  2. Report on use of ATLAS.ti in a data analysis project. Those who successfully complete the first step of the application process will be asked to submit a short report following a set of guidelines. The purpose of this report is to show how the applicant used (or is using) ATLAS.ti in a given analysis project, focusing on methodology, document organization, data segmentation, coding, analysis, and production of outputs.

  3. Meeting through web-conferencing with ATLAS.ti staff. After submitting the report, applicants will meet through web-conferencing with the ATLAS.ti staff in charge of the certification program. In this meeting, they will be asked to go over specific aspects of the report and explain specific software procedures.

Depending on the level of demonstrated expertise with the software, successful applicants may be awarded certification as Junior or Senior professional trainers. Those who qualify in the Junior category will be able to apply for Senior certification in the future.

All certified professional trainers will receive a certificate, a free ATLAS.ti educational license, a button they can place on their websites, free training and support, will have access to teaching resources, and will join a discussion group with the other certified instructors. Additionally, ATLAS.ti GmbH will invite all certified professional trainers to have their names listed on the ATLAS.ti website under Independent Consultants, and have their services advertised through the company website. Certified professional trainers will also qualify to partner with ATLAS.ti GmbH in future training and consultation projects.

*Note: This certification program applies to ATLAS.ti 7 Windows exclusively. The professional certification program for ATLAS.ti Mac will be implemented in the second semester of 2015.
