Become one of our Accredited Training Institutes (ATI)

The first step to becoming one of our training partners is to make sure you have a current SAIA membership. Once you have established that you are a member in good standing you can get approved to teach our content by submitting your completed application to the SAIA. The ATI Review Committee will then consider your application for approval as an ATI. There is a one-time start-up fee and an annual $500 renewal fee to maintain your training status for each location you wish to have listed.

Individuals within your company who are interested in becoming an instructor must submit their resumé with the application for the ATI Review Committee to review their qualifications. Once approved as a qualified candidate, they will need to attend, and successfully complete, the SAIA Train the Trainer Facilitator Skills Workshop, and the Competent Person Training programs.
