The Accredited Training Council Trade Association (ATCTA) aims to serve as the voice of its membership, including avocation for transparency and accountability on issues that directly impact ITSM professionals.

These founding partners include: Global Knowledge, InterProm USA, ITSM Academy, and SED-IT.According to the founding directors of the ATCTA, a primary goal was to provide customers with confidence in the form of the ATCTA Trustmark, “Customers want to know that they will get top quality results from their training -- not simply pass an exam. The ATCTA focus on quality helps our industry by making customers feel confident that when they see the ATCTA Trustmark displayed by a training provider they know they are getting an effective training solution.”
