"Open" Training Information

What is an "Open" Training?

ATA sponsors classes on some of the most popular topics at our training center in North Litlte Rock.  These classes are "open" to anyone who wishes to register.  ATA members enjoy a discount on the material fee.

Non-members must pre-pay for "open" classes.


"Open" Training Payment Policy

Arkansas Transit Association invoices agencies for all employees registered for "open" classes.  Exceptions will be made when a representative from the organization calls to cancel the registration BEFORE the class begins.

If you know that an employee will be unable to attend a class for which he or she has been registered, you have two options. 

1) Send a substitute employee or

2) Call our office or send an e-mail before the class begins. 

Otherwise your agency will be invoiced for the cost of that person’s attendance.  We understand that emergencies happen and things can change very quickly.  If you are unable to perform either option, please call as soon as you can so we can discuss the situation.

If you are a current member of the Associaiton, we do not require pre-payment for the attendees before the class begins.  We will continue to invoice your agency following each training.  Certificates and invoices are not given to the attending employees.  They are mailed to the agency’s training contact.

Non-member agencies are asked to pre-pay. If you would like to discuss becoming a member of ATA, please call our office at 501.372.8900 and speak with Rebecca East.
