Extension of Faculty and Student Card Expiration

The ATCN Committee also recognizes the widespread, ongoing cancellation of scheduled ATCN course which has led to the inability to renew expiring ATCN cards and also prevent current ATCN Faculty from teaching. For this reason, the ATCN Committee, with the approval of the STN Board of Directors, has updated the previously communicated guidance as follows:

  • Any ATCN Educator/Course Director/Faculty who have not been able to obtain the required number of teaching opportunities whose status expires over the next 6 months will be extended until December 31, 2021.
  • Any ATCN Providers/Students whose course verification expires over the next 6 months will be extended until December 31, 2021. The expectation is that they will take the next available course in order to renew their course verification.
  • This extension through December 31, 2021 also applies to students who have received Instructor Potential status but have been unable to attend a Faculty Course.
  • This extension through December 31, 2021 also applies to Faculty Candidates who have been unable to get monitored teaching in ATCN Provider Course.
