How ATTP Evaluates RTTP Training Events

ATTP employs multiple criteria and evaluation steps before approving CE points for RTTP training events. Criteria used include:

  • Diversity of speakers and their ability to provide a local context as well as an international perspective
  • Course design and whether the information is current and relevant to the development of the technology transfer profession

The review process provides professional judgment about the quality of the training events offered, their suitability for technology transfer professionals, and finally, to encourage their continual improvement. To learn more, please see Training Event Recognition.
