Frequently Asked Questions
Yes it can. Each module can be certified individually or as part of a cluster of modules. the awarding organisation (IMI Awards Ltd) will quality assure and certificate each module - a £30 fee will apply for each certificate issued.
No. Unless linked to reaccreditation (where the candidate already has a valid ATa card in the appropriate route), an AOM will not count towards ATA accreditation. Candidates reaccrediting via the AOM update route will be required to sign the Code of Conduct and will have their photograph taken by the centre at the time of registration along with the registration fee.
It is crucial that centres offer clear and accurate guidance in order to avoid confusion. All 'stand alone' AOMs will be defined on the certificate as 'ATA approved'- inclusion of the ATA logo on the certificate is a must because the modules are aligned to ATA and this will only help to bolster their credibility in our industry.
No - only candidates who successfully complete ATA (either via full assessment or through AOM update) and are in possession of a valid ATA card, will be entered onto the Public ATA Register.
