The Apple Authorized Training Center for Education (AATCE) program supports schools that incorporate Apple-authorized course materials into their existing accredited curriculum and administer certifications to their enrolled students and faculty.
This program is flexible in its design, using the Apple Pro Training Series textbooks and other materials to augment the existing curriculum.
To ensure quality, consistency, and accessibility, AATCEs use ACTs to deliver Apple’s authorized courses.
The AATCE program is open to schools in Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa.
The Apple Certified Trainer (ACT) program prepares you to deliver exclusive Apple-authorized courses and exams that cover a range of products. As an ACT, you’ll be equipped to provide training with the skill and professionalism that Apple students and customers expect worldwide.
ACT candidates are qualified per course based on technical proficiency and instructional skills. You’ll be validated during a Train the Trainer (T3) course related to a product, and you must pass the corresponding trainer certification exam.
After you become an ACT, you may deliver courses at AATCE locations. To maintain your certification, you must uphold a high standard of preparedness, and you may need to be recertified annually.
The ACT program is currently open only to schools in Europe, the Middle East, India, and Africa.
