About the program

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

Certified ATLAS.ti professional trainers are qualified to provide consultation and training services in ATLAS.ti. 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 can be a thesis or dissertation project).
  • To demonstrate knowledge and experience with qualitative methodology, research design, and how to carry out a qualitative data analysis project with ATLAS.ti.
  • To demonstrate an advanced level of expertise with ATLAS.ti.

If you meet these requirements, you are welcome to apply for professional trainer certification. We will ask you to provide your contact information and CV so that we may list you on our website under ‘ATLAS.ti Consultants’. The application process includes the following steps:

  1. Online application questionnaire. In this questionnaire, you will be asked questions related to your experience and knowledge of ATLAS.ti. You will receive a response from our team within 48 hours informing whether you meet the necessary requirements to continue to the second step of the certification process (if you do not receive an email within the given time, please check your spam folder).

  2. Meet with the ATLAS.ti team. You will have a virtual (web-conference) meeting with a member of our ATLAS.ti certification team. In this oral exam, you will be asked to teach a class on the software.

If you meet these requirements, you will be awarded certification as a JUNIOR or SENIOR Professional Trainer. Those who qualify as a Junior Trainer have the opportunity 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, certified professional trainers will have their names listed on the ATLAS.ti website under the Consultants section. Certified professional trainers will also qualify to partner with ATLAS.ti GmbH in future training and consultation projects.
