The ATACP meets the 100 hour requirement for a certificate in Assistive Technology Applications with 10 CEUs from California State University, Northridge's Tseng College and the Center on Disabilities.
The course work is delivered in combination of online and in-person modules. The online instruction and final project must be completed within 90 days after the in-person training. The program is offered in a blended format, meaning part is online and the other in-person (both components are required). The 100 hour program is consists of 76 hours online plus 16 hours in-person and an 8 hour final project.
