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.
What's the Difference Between Specialty Certificate Programs and the ATRI Certification?
Specialty Certificate Programs are 2-day, 15-hour programs for which you receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course. The certificate will be in an area of emphasis such as Geriatrics, Orthopedics, etc. The certificate is bestowed because of the educational hours you put into the course. You will also receive our CEC/CEU Record Sheet which is your official Certificate of Attendance for all courses taken at these events.
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.
