Summer Certification Series

ATIXA Announces its 2020 Title IX Summer Certification Series Online

ATIXA, the Association of Title IX Administrators, announces its 2020 Summer Certification Series. The 12-course curriculum has been designed for highly interactive and virtual delivery over a two-week period in June 2020. Registrants can earn up to six valuable ATIXA certifications over the course of this series.

This is the broadest range of Title IX certification training courses you can find, from the primary Title IX industry association that invented Title IX Certification ten years ago. Since 2011, ATIXA’s panel of experts has provided certification to more than 15,000 professionals through our high quality programs. ATIXA certifications are meaningful emblems of the competence of our trainees, who use them to exemplify professionalism, gain new positions, and earn promotions and pay scale advancement.

The Summer Certification Series is the first of its type, offered fully online. Registrants can pursue a combination of certification sessions that feature interactive question and answer forums with faculty, self-guided curriculum, group work, technique mirroring/modeling exercises, mock hearings, role plays, and case study sessions moderated by ATIXA’s experts.

ATIXA leverages sophisticated technology to provide a distance learning and interactive experience that is robust, flexible, highly engaging, and valuable to ATIXA members and the field.

Key components of the 12-course curriculum include the introductory courses, advanced courses, and a new course on the implementation of the new 2020 Title IX Regulations, which is being offered both weeks during this Series. The new regulations require paradigm-shifting changes to achieve compliance, and this course offers essential learning for all Title IX administrators who seek access to ATIXA’s expert breakdown, analysis, and application advice. Several courses are among the most popular, including “Civil Rights Investigator Level One” and “Title IX Coordinator and Administrator Level One.”

In the current environment, ATIXA continues to focus on the needs of its members and certificants through scholarships. If you are interested in a multi-course discount or group pricing, please contact ATIXA (610-644-7858) before registering.

Title IX Hearing Officer & Decision-Maker Training & Certification Course

June 18-19, 2020 11a.m.-6p.m. ET

Register Now!

The proposed regulations focus heavily on hearings, and while certain aspects of the mandated hearing structure may change, the current administration has made its fondness for hearings well known.

One thing that’s crystal clear? The need for training. Unlike judges and attorneys, who learn on the job, in the courtroom, individuals who facilitate administrative hearings in the educational context do not have this training – and why would you? But more than 200 lawsuits have been filed, criticizing college panel actions and decisions.

Hearing officer training will provide you and your institution with a significant advantage as the regs make their way down the pike. Join us and do a deep dive into the efficacy and efficiency of hearing processes to ensure your procedures are at the vanguard of the industry and are able to withstand scrutiny from the courts.

How do I earn CCCs?
To begin accruing CCCs, you must first be certified (membership is not required). In order to be certified, you must attend a qualifying certification event. Certification events typically occur either at third-party locations (i.e. hotels), at campus-sponsored regional trainings where a number of other campuses also attend, or at this unique online training experience. Qualifying events are labeled as a “Certification Event” in their event descriptions posted online. There is no additional cost to participants to enroll in CCC once you are certified.

Once you have been certified by ATIXA, you can begin accruing CCCs by attending any of our qualifying educational opportunities, either live or online. To maintain your certification, you will need to accrue twelve (12) credits every two years. CCCs expire two years after earning them because the field is ever-changing and the laws, guidance and court decisions necessitate frequent and consistent professional development.

What is a digital badging?

It’s now easier than ever to share your achievements and credentials! In addition to the certificates of completion provided by ATIXA following a certifying event, we also offer personalized badges issued through our partner, Accredible.

These digital credentials allow users to present a rich and trustworthy record of their learning to anyone at any time. One of the greatest advantages is the ease at which they can be shared onto social platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, as well as shared organically via inclusion in one’s email signature.

Yes! In these extraordinary times, we have made the decision to cancel the in-person Denver hotel Training & Certification event and create this Summer Certification Series Online training event instead.

All those attendees that were previously registered for Denver, have been moved over into the Summer Certification Series.
