AISC Certification Services AISC Certification



The “T” in “Atema” stands for “Training”. From day one, Atema has been committed to providing quality training for the steel industry. Our first training course,  fondly called the “Atema Bootcamp” has put us in touch with fabricators and erectors both domestic and internationally, all wanting learn more about AISC and how certification might work for them. That initial class is still going strong, both publicly and privately, just for Atema clients, but our training program has morphed into so much more.

You’ll find a list of our course offerings below. Don’t see something you’re looking for? Contact us. Customized training is always an option.
