Please note that this course is a training event only and does not itself provide certification. This is the hands-on application of knowledge opportunity, where participants take what they have learned in the two-day ATIXA Decision-Maker Certification, and operationalize it in a real life case study simulation. There is nothing like applying the skills to cement the learning outcomes hearing officers will attain.
