The Online Training Portal gives you a way to provide individual training for your employees with the following benefits:

  • Flexible: The courses in the Online Training Portal are all on-demand; they are designed for maximum flexibility and convenience.
    • Your employees can take courses anytime (24/7/365), anywhere (work, home, public library, etc.), and on any device (computer, smartphone, tablet).
    • You won’t have to send your employees to North Little Rock for training or schedule us to travel to your location.
    • Your employees can get required training whenever they need it, not just when it’s available.
  • Familiar: The Online Training Portal offers courses that mirror the in-person training experience.
    • Courses are a combination of narrated slideshows, videos, and quizzes.
    • Students can download handouts for each course.
    • Students can print off or save a course completion certificate after course completion. Student and agency will also receive course completion confirmations by email.
    • Courses include a “Contact Us” button, so students can email ATA with any questions or problems they have.
    • Students who complete DHS/DDS Transportation Training or START Defensive Driving are eligible for Defensive Driving Course designation from Office of Driver Services.
  • COVID-proof: The Online Training Portal is a safe, effective platform for employee training, even in the midst of a pandemic.
