Apple Authorized Training Center for Education

The Apple Authorized Training Center for Education (AATCE) program recognizes educational institutions that demonstrate a commitment to delivering courses on Apple technologies and to meeting Apple’s trainer, facility, and lab requirements. 

Apple has dedicated instructional material for AATCEs. The program is flexible in design and training, and it’s scalable to fit all the needs of an educational institution within a school semester. Certification is available so your students can demonstrate their skills to potential employers.

Student learning
App development
Technology has a language called code. And Apple believes that coding is an essential skill. Learning to code teaches you how to solve problems and work together in creative ways, and it helps you build apps that bring your ideas to life. Apple thinks that everyone should have a chance to create something that can change the world. So Apple designed a program that lets anyone learn, write, and teach code.
macOS and iOS
The macOS curriculum teaches students and IT staff the best ways to support macOS users.  The course includes lectures and hands-on exercises that provide real-world experience. The Apple Deployment curriculum teaches students the skills, tools, and knowledge they need to deploy Apple devices successfully and easily in business and educational environments.  
Creative apps
The Final Cut Pro X and Logic Pro X curricula teaches students what they need to know to meet industry standards for using Apple’s revolutionary video and audio software.
