Continuing Education

ATL offers online webinars making our technical seminars available to our current and potential clients. The seminars are intended to provide participants with an understanding of technical topics that will assist them with their project needs.

ATL offers many support services for Architects and Engineers, and we are proud to aid our clients with their professional development hour (PDH) requirements. PDHs from ATL courses are recognized by most U.S. states including New York. ATL is a NYS approved Sponsor Organization through the Practicing Institute of Engineering (PIE). Our seminars provide an opportunity to interact with our subject matter experts as they provide you with technical insight and inform you on the current practices in the field.

If you are interested in in arranging a seminar, please call Zach Short at 518-383-9144 or email us at info@atlantictesting.com.
