Why Stay at ATRI Host Hotels?
Staying at ATRI host hotels offers great networking opportunities to meet your colleagues and make new friends. When you book your overnight room in the Aquatic Therapy block of rooms, we are able to guarantee a certain number of overnight rooms at the hotel and that reduces the overall costs associated with producing the conference. These savings allow ATRI to offer competitive registration fees and the services that are included with those fees, such as hands-on pool education. And you can’t beat the convenience to run between your overnight room, the pool and lecture room when staying at the host hotel.
New in 2017 - Swift Skills Courses
ATRI is offering new Swift Skills Courses in 2017. Each course is 7-8 hours in length. These courses provide you with concise, economical, practical, evidence-based education in a timely way. Collect two Swift Skills courses to be awarded an ATRI Specialty Certificate. You will also receive our CEC/CEU Record Sheet which is your official Certificate of Attendance for all courses taken at these events.
What's the Difference Between Specialty Certificates and the ATRI Certification?
Specialty Certificates are earned by taking two Swift Skills Courses for which you receive a certificate of completion at the end of the courses. The certificate is given because of the educational hours you put into the courses.
The ATRI Certification is a 3-hour comprehensive exam that will test your ability to meet the Aquatic Therapy and Rehabilitation Industry Standards to practice. The exam is optional. You may take the exam at any of our National Conferences or online anytime. Click Here for Complete Details on the ATRI Certification Exam.
