Advanced Training & Education Center (ATEC-Prime)

The Advanced Training & Education Center (ATEC-Prime) is the nucleus for ongoing education and broad information services for the workers’ compensation ecosystem. Prime courses, webinars and podcasts, exclusive articles, Dean / Faculty forum, live programs, group and research projects, and more, are offered*. Subscribers are considered students which provides access to bi-monthly live Student Townhall and other benefits. Part of the purpose of ATEC-Prime is to provide an “Alumni Association” for WRP and ATEC-A graduates, which will provide community support and idea sharing among this elite group of professionals.

ATEC-Prime members have access to a continually increasing library of specialty education courses, providing all continuing education credits needed for the Workers’ Recovery Professional Certification every 3 years. This information hub is available by itself or in conjunction with other products.
