Delivery Format

Delivery time: Four days in Classroom

Frequency of Occurrence: As demand requires

The first two days are taught in the classroom with the remaining four days consisting of practical environments where learners participate in one co-teach session and one observation session with AMTA’s senior instructor.

When required, distance learning can be facilitated in real-time by a qualified AMTA instructor via an online conferencing tool (presently, Microsoft Teams) when using a computer or device equipped with sound and video. Participants will access both the course and its materials online.

Training is completed with the information required to successfully manage a student’s progression through the course to completion. Once certified, instructors will be able to book classes, register students, and instruct the AMTA’s non-DEES PDIC training program, all through the instructor dashboard in the AMTA’s Learning Management System (LMS). This will allow you to issue a certificate of completion.
