How to Become an ATI

The first step to becoming an ATI is submitting your completed application to the SAIA – only companies that have been in business for at least one year can apply and are members of SAIA. The ATI Review Committee will then consider your application for approval as an ATI. There is a one-time start-up fee of $2,500 for supported scaffold and $1,500 for suspended scaffold, along with an annual $500 renewal fee.

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