In-person forums and online trainings policy

New Draft Policy Under Discussion – Online Level One Trainings

In 2020, we instituted a temporary policy that allows up to 100% online Level One trainings, with permission.  We had a directional vote in late 2021 that indicated that yes, the ATA wanted to see a permanent policy that was similar.  The Curriculum Committee has worked on a draft policy around online Level One programs.  Comments are being collected at the in-person trainer forums in the US and Europe this summer.  And of course, online comments here for everyone in the ATA can be posted in Sutra here.  Please let us know your thoughts – and your recommendations to improve this policy.
