Why attend Advanced Technology Institute

Our training programs are hands-on and provide the skills necessary to assist veterans in their current profession or transition into a new career path. ATI offers year-round schedules, allowing students to be enrolled full-time throughout their enrollment and graduate faster than a traditional academic schedule. Class schedules (morning or evening) are consistent so that students know their schedule from orientation-to-graduation, allowing them to balance their education with work and family responsibilities.
