“Completing the ATM Operator training through ATMIA was very rewarding for several reasons; the curriculum design and various subjects provided valuable information and the tools to help expand my knowledge of the ATM industry, including policies and procedures necessary for greater teamwork and productive business management.  I would recommend this training to anyone in the ATM industry as a tool for personal and professional growth due to the quality of content and the ease of navigation within the system. “- Randi Brandi, Assistant Controller-Vault Manager, Meirtran, Inc.

“Through the training courses for ATM Operators provided by ATMIA, not only was I able to reinforce and refresh my knowledge of the industry basics, I also learned the mechanics to which I had not been previously exposed. I strongly recommend this course study for all participants in the industry.  These courses are a great educational value,”- Amy Coulson, ISO Manager, Pueblo Bank & Trust

"Lodgepole ATM believes in providing relevant and current education for all our staff. The ATMIA Academy certification will allow us to continue to differentiate ourselves in the market. As the ATM industry continues to mature, it is more important than ever to be able to show customers your differentiated value proposition. The certification will greatly contribute to that effort.

As we researched ATM industry learning opportunities, the ATMIA Academy curriculum was by far the most robust and up to date. The range of courses for all the roles in our organization is unmatched based on our research. The cost of the training is a bargain when compared to sending several staff to a classroom training."

"I took the ATM Operations Manager training course because ATMs are always more complicated than people give them credit for. The content ensured I understood all components of the operations of the ATM to help guarantee that I was managing my own fleet effectively. I would recommend the training to anyone who has not “grown up” in the industry and touches ATMs in some way."
- Erin Kolb, VP-ATM Channel Manager, TCF National Bank

"I am an ATMIA-approved consultant, and therefore have a responsibility not only to demonstrate expertise in the services I provide, but also in my understanding of the responsibilities and challenges of all the stakeholders, and the best practices applied or recommended in the Industry. In line with this responsibility, I decided to register for the ATM Operators’ training program. 
I made the right decision. The high-quality content and presentation of the 164 sessions provided an excellent overview of the challenges, opportunities and best practices inherent in each area. It was so engaging that I felt consistently drawn in to the exercises and at no point did I feel that the training was “long” or “dragging on”.
I can recommend this course both to novices and to experienced professionals in the ATM industry who want to refresh their existing knowledge or enhance their understanding."
                                                                                                                - Daniel Buetler, Buetler Keystone Consulting

“Being a business owner who is relatively new to this industry, the program really helped open my eyes to, and help me prepare for, larger issues I'm going to encounter as my business grows.”- Eric Barnstein, Apogee Business Solutions

“As a Sponsor Financial Institution for the ATM Industry, we recognize the importance of understanding the various components within this payment segment.

“From ADA and EMV to Windows migrations, our industry is in a constant state of evolution and improvement. The training offered by ATMIA is a critical tool in keeping ATM operators, both banks and IADs, current on industry trends and the effects changes and improved standards will have on business operations.
In an age of data breaches and extensive card fraud, a well-educated and informed ATM industry helps build integrity, expertise and visibility to professional ATM operations worldwide. As the world leader in retail ATM operations and a global sponsor of ATMIA, Cardtronics is proud to participate in the training offered by ATMIA.”- Bill Knoll, Executive Vice President, Allpoint Network and Bank Branding, Cardtronics USA

“In my training as both and educator and attorney, I have long recognized the value and importance of knowledge and information.  In the early days of the non-bank ATM deployer marketplace, IADs large and small alike struggled to stay current and compliant on national, state, and local regulatory requirements as well as network and industry standards but it was especially difficult for the smaller IAD with limited budgets and resources to gain access to this important industry data.  This information and knowledge gap has been largely closed thanks in no small part to the new industry training and certification programs now offered by ATMIA.  These informative and cost effective programs can provide IADs with a knowledge base that could otherwise take years to obtain.  If you want to get a “jump-start” on the ATM industry, I hope you will consider participating in one of ATMIA’s new training and certification programs!”- Lloyd Chatham, Vice-President & Corporate Counsel, Payment Alliance International, Inc.
